I have a \book in which one of the scores is only three staves long. These got spread across the page, of course, and I wanted to have a more normal spacing. Rummaging around in the archives brought up the raggedbottom and raggedlastbottom concepts. I tried both of these, both in \paper and \layout, both true and false -- nothing. I got what I wanted by a rather ugly hack which took a lot of research time:

b4. c8 f,2 g2      c2. ~ c2   \bar ":|"    % end of piece

\stopStaff
   \override Staff.Clef #'transparent = ##t
\override Staff.KeySignature #'transparent = ##t
\override Score.BarNumber  #'break-visibility = #all-invisible


Isn't there a more elegant way? And what's the meaning of the ragged bits if they don't do anything in this situation?



You didn't tell us what version you are running. I believe there have been times when raggedbottom hasn't been correct. I just tested a 3 line example (with 'raggedbottom = ##t' in the paper block) with 2.7.33 and it worked perfectly. I have also found in the past that if there are other errors in your code (Lilypond input) raggedbottom gives undesired results.



with .33, I recommend using ragged-bottom iso. raggedbottom.
