My experience of "final touches" in general is that on the average you have to repeat the final touch at least 3 times, since you found some other minor detail you wanted to fix so that you had to rerun the full process again. Therefore,
I personally prefer to spend more time on fixing the problem in the original
tool (LilyPond in this case) than it would take to do the final touch (once) in
some other tool. The fixes you mention, placement of some objects,
are often fairly easy to obtain within LilyPond.

Thanks a lot,
I was a bit afraid to ask this because it's not really a question about lilypond. To Kieren, the "final touch" is about the placement of some objects like rests or harmonics : a few months ago I was working on "In the woods" by Takemitsu (a piece for guitar) and the notation used for some harmonics was really great ( the note played with the left hand without stem, the one played with the right hand without stem and with a diamond head, the two smaller and between brackets and the closest note from the heard pitch normal with a little circle above) So the problem is not to know how to change things but just to keep an intelligible code.
I'll try Inkscape it seems great!
I've a second question : can we enable or disable whole engravers from some contexts with something like the \override command so that we don't have to create new contexts with specific properties? Maybe I'll have to open a new thread for that.
Thanks everybody.

    Inkscape is free and can directly open .ps files generated by
    LilyPond :)
