Now I have another problem.  Suppose I want to insert tempo to the
conductors score at specific places (not only at the beginning of the
score), and I want these tempo marks (e.g. Allegretto crotchet = 76) printed
only *once* on top of the system on the conductor's score, but these tempo
marks must be reproduced in each parts score.  How can this be done?
If I enter the tempo marks in each part, then they will also be printed on
top of each part in the conductor's score, which is undesirable.  However if
I only enter the tempo marks on the top instrument (flute, which is what
have been done in the project I received), then all the other parts will
have no tempo indications!
 What should I do?

What I do for this sort of thing is to make a separate block for global things. In the global block I put rehearsal marks, time signatures, repeats, special barlines...and tempo markings.

When I create the full score I put the global block with the top staff in the score. For each part I simply include the global block. This should do exactly what you're after.

That's sort of what I do. Only I have a problem (lily 2.10.33). Collisions.

Obviously, I can't (easily) tweak the placing of things like "Allegro" if it's going to be inserted into lots of parts (nor do I want the hassle). But, to give a current example, my trombone part has a top f (in lily terms, an f' in bass clef) right where I want to put an Andante. The end effect is that the Andante has trampled all over the notes with the result that neither is really legible.

What do I do here?
