Got it. I'm trying to increase the space between systems on a page, and minimumVerticalExtent is for staves in a system ...

(it is possible though, that it is impossible to easily generate tighter spacing. If you have a lot of notes, then they simply have to be very small
in order to fit on one page)

What did work, though, was

     \layout {
             betweensystemspace = 10\mm

Thanks, I didn't know that.  Info added to CVS.

This is actually documented in section 7.5.11. I do think, actually (and planned to do some work on it) that this should be expanded to be far more important in the manual.

I've got a half-written tutorial for lilypond, and it's intended to cover this sort of thing. I'm hoping to get some music I can set as a tutorial from one of my bandmasters, but what I would love is either a Sousa or Kenneth Alford March. Does anyone know where I can get an "out of copyright" copy to work on?

HEX wondered how much he should tell the Wizards. He felt it would not be a
good idea to burden them with too much input. Hex always thought of his reports
as Lies-to-People.
