One thing I find odd, probably because I don't fully understand, is this: I have a .ly file that has 10 \score blocks. I place print-all-headers = ##t in the \paper block so I can define sub pages headers seperately from the top level \book headers. I first define: title, subtitle and instrument headers at the top level \book, then do a page break, that gives me a cover page. On the subsequent pages of music I define title and subsubtitle. I also define a blank subtitle = "" which blanks out the subtitle from the \book top level. And I define instrument = "" but it does not blank out the instrument from the top level \book headers. Seems odd that one will override the top level header and one will not. I am guessing there is probably an override that I can use to have the instrument header not appear on the subsequent pages?
thanks,
It's not so odd if you realize what is handled at the book level and what is handled at the score level. When you set print-all-headers=##t, you tell LilyPond to typeset the full title at the score level, i.e. for each single score. However, the page heading and foot is still handled at the book level, so it only takes into account the settings that are done at the book level, not the ones that are done within each score block (which I guess is what you do when you set instrument = "").

This is something I am currently struggling with - my title page has -
\book {
title =
subtitle =
instrument = }

Then in my score blocks -
\score {
... notes...
title = "Hooked"
subtitle = ##f
subsubtitle = "(EMaj - F#m)"
instrument = ##f }.

On the resulting .pdf's the title page is fine, the subsequent pages all have the instrument name (which is set to false so it shouldn't appear on the subsequent pages) at the top of the page, then below that is the title "Hooked" in the example above, then below that the subsubtitle stuff. Notice the subtitle is correctly turned off but the instrument is not turned off. Am I missing something obvious here?
