```Quoting Vivian Barty-Taylor <address@hidden>:

```I'm using version 2.9.11

```
I've got a score which has text instructions to the players at a couple of places and I need to introduce more space between staves at these points to fit the text in. I got this working in a smaller file where I was only formatting the necessary staves.
```
```
I dont' really understand the problem. How to you typeset the text instructions? As long as you let LilyPond insert the text as well
```(using text scripts or whatever), it should automatically allocate
more space between the staves.

```
Actually, inserting a text script that takes some extra space is a good way in general to increase the spacing between two staves, for example using something like c^\markup{\pad-to-box #'(0 . 0) #'(0 . 10) \line{Some text} } or if you just want the space, not any text:
```c^\markup{\pad-markup #10 \null }
