```Hi again.... thanx alot.

1. How do I set the space between the diagrams ... there is way too much now.
```
You mean the horizontal space? That's your own fault since you
inserted \break commands. LilyPond spaces out all music
evenly on each score line.
```
```
```
So you say that it is impollible to have 2 diagrams in one line, with only one cm space between
```And in the next line have four diagrams with also one cm space between?
Thats what I am looking for... Very sad, if it is not possible...

If you remove that line, you will notice that the chord names
are printed just edge to edge with the fret diagrams.
I added this setting to get some space above the fret
diagrams. Modify the second number (8.0) if you want
some other distance. Read more in "Vertical spacing"
in the manual.

And then please look at my following file. (Sorry it is so long, just to let you get an idea of my prob)

Did you search the mailing list archives? It's certainly a
popular question that has been answered several times.
\layout{
\context{
\Score
\remove "Bar_number_engraver"
}
}

```
3. There is still some white space at the top... can I remove this as well?
```
Don't know. I seem to recall some email discussion on white
space at the top of pages, search the mailing list archives.
