Re: Increasing the horizontal space between notes

In my case, I'm not sure "\break" would work: I'm working with unmetered
music (no bars) that combines notes and lyrics.

I've looked at "Horizontal Spacing" under "Global Layout" in the manual,
and, as you say, it looks fairly advanced, but it seems like the way to
go for me.

The section mentions two properties of "SpacingSpanner":
"spacing-increment" and "shortest-duration-space". What is the syntax
for these properties? How and where should they be set?

Thank you.
