If I write

Q:5/8=56

in the header I get a message "Note too much dotted", and the displayed tempo doesn't make much sense. (Should be dotted crotchet + crotchet = 56)

And why should this give me a message "Too many words in lyric line"?

Works with no complaint in BarFly, and appears to typeset correctly in abcm2ps.

Hi Jack,

You should not ask questions about abcm2ps here. I rarely look at these forums.

If you want many notes in the tempo, don't set just the duration, but tell which notes:

Q:3/8 1/4=56

You have too many notes here:

B |[M:2/4]B c d> d |c> B (B2 | A4) ||
w:War lein tour moal kas- tell Ar- vor_!

because "!" is a word by itself.
