Verified in both version 2019/02/22 v2.31.0 and version 2017/01/22 v2.17.1 .


I do not know if this ever worked before.


When typesetting a \stanza with \numberlinefalse, \sethanginsymbol has no effect; the continuation line is indented, which is the default, but that behaviour cannot be customized.

From what I can tell, \do@line does this:


But \@lock is calculated by \getline@num, which does not go all the way with \numberlinefalse, so \@lock is always zero (I think). How to solve this, however, is beyond my LaTeX expertise. This happens both with reledmac and reledpar.

Minimal Working Example





    This is a very, very long line that takes so
    much space that it definitely causes a line break\&


If someone ends up here before this gets addressed, there are two simple workarounds: either \firstlinenum{999999} or \AtEveryPstart{\hidenumbering} can "solve" the problem.
