```Anybody of you has tried using Scribus 1.3.5 to render LilyPond files?
See here: http://docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&page=renderframes

If the score is one page only, it works fine.
But if it's 2 pages or more, I could not find any way to spread the
LilyPond output over the pages.
So I can see just one page and all the other pages are hidden..

```

One way is to split or burst the lilypond pdf so that each page is a separate pdf; there's a number of commandline utilities to do this, such as pdftk <pdftk.com>
```
```
```
thanks for the hint
anyway, it's not handy and it does not worth

```
I think this feature of Scribus is good for showing small pieces of LilyPond output (for example, in a book about musical theory).
```
```
But if you want to make a complete book (which is my case), with many scores, you have to use other methods.
```
As far as I know, there are two ways:
* lilypond-book and LaTeX
* \book and \bookpart blocks in LilyPond

```
Less intuitive, but much more powerful.. if I only managed to get them working ;-)
```
