# Can one use \stanza within a quote environment?

In the following example it can be seen that the line numbering is broken by the quote environment around the verse:

\documentclass[article,12pt,a4paper]{memoir}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{reledmac}
\setstanzaindents{3,2,2}
\firstlinenum{1}
\linenumincrement{1}

\begin{document}

\beginnumbering
\pstart
\lipsum[1]
\pend
\begin{quote}
\stanza
abc / &
def // \&
\end{quote}
\pstart
\lipsum[2]
\pend
\stanza
abc / &
def // \&
\endnumbering

\end{document}


The reledmac manual in its section on Quotation environments gives the following instruction:

You must open any quotation environments inside a \pstart ... \pend block, not outside.

Which I tried, but if I pull beginning and end of the quote environment before \pend and after \pstart respectively it doesn't compile at all.

Now I'm wondering what is the best way to include a piece of metric text, marked as a quote, in a longer prose passage. Maybe I should forget about using the \stanza command for it, the stanzanum counter not being necessary here, and just take care of the indentation manually?

• for now, there is no possibility. please open a github issue, but I won't have time before a lot of time. – Maïeul Jun 2 '16 at 8:19
