 LM 2.1.3
 I don't understand well the second sentence in this paragraph (in
 master only at the moment):

"This shorthand may be useful in other places where the rhythm changes with an unchanging pitch, but remember a bare duration will attach to
 the preceding pitch, making a single note, if only white space
 separates them."

 I can put more than white spaces between  the pitch and the bare

 \version "2.19.15"
 \relative c' {
  c8 4. 2 |
  c8-3 \mark \default 4. 2

Hi Federico

If you had c4 a4 a8 a8 you could not write c4 a  8  8, as this would
be interpreted as c4 a8 a8.  You'd have to write c4 a4 8 8.

Ok, now I understand. I didn't get the meaning of 'making a single note'. I think that adding this example would be very useful, because otherwise the sentence is a bit tricky to interpret.

That was the situation I was trying to describe.  If you can improve
on the (English) words to make it clearer, please do.

No, I think an example would be enough.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of you!
