-One big problem I had when exporting my file was that LilyPond would turn out lots of double time signatures, that is, two instead of one in the same place. This again caused general chaos and confusion in the score, with events being trapped between the two time signatures etc. Quite a nightmare to look at. Only after fiddling around with this for a long time did I discover the cause of this behaviour. I had inserted ​– ​or at least, that's what I thought ​– ​some triplets in one of the voices. But upon closer examination,​ it turned out that I hadn't managed to bind the three notes together in the triplet, like I thought, but only two of them. This caused a mystical rhytmical phenomenon that for some reason I didn't notice while listening to the piece. But mathematically,​ the note values didn't add up, as a result of this flawed triplet. Fixing those triplets, to my great relief, made those nasty double time signatures finally go away.+One big problem I had when exporting my file was that LilyPond would turn out lots of double time signatures, that is, two instead of one in the same place.

-If you are reading this at a point where you now say to yourself "Gee, I wish someone would have told me all of this two months ago", don't worry. If there are problems with your file that seem too tedious to tidy up through Rosegarden, many things can actually be fixed quite easily in the LilyPond text. All you need is the stomach to look at the LilyPond manual a bit. Remember to take deep breaths while doing so, and it will hopefully start to make a little bit sense after a while. Keep in mind that you can search for the word you're looking for in the content list at the top, thus sparing yourself the unnecessary pain of having to read through a lot of confusing stuff that isn't relevant for your purposes, and that only makes your brain want to retire and move to Florida.+If you are reading this at a point where you now say to yourself "Gee, I wish someone would have told me all of this two months ago", don't worry.
