First, I think you are doing a wonderful job with the manual since it is so big and complete.

I am wondering, seeing all the simple "howto" questions you answer giving a link in the documentation, if I would not be useful to simply gather on a page all those "howto" questions and the related links when the answer actually *is* in the documentation. This could provide a way to quickly find information for common questions about topics which are clearly covered but not easy to spot in the documentation (which sometimes is the case :)

Look at \set in the index!  This will direct you to 9.2.3.  The VERY
FIRST EXAMPLE of \set involves changing a property at the Score level!

Of course, for expand-limit you probably want \override instead.

4.6 Style sheets ?!
9.2.6 Changing context default settings ?!?!

Anthony, please read the manual.  I've spent literally over *100 HOURS*
writing and updating manual since April.  When people complain about the
lack of info in the docs, when that info is clearly *IN* the docs -- in
some cases, when that info has been in the docs for years -- I really
wonder why I bother.

I mean, if I stopped working on lilypond and worked at McDonalds serving
fries, I would have made over $800 in that time.  That would cover two
months of rent.
