Hi "oldwhtman",

Is there a way set the maximum number of measures that
Lilypond will use to build a line of music?

As far as I know (Joe? Mats?) there's no setting like
If you're really interested in such a thing, you could always submit (and possibly sponsor) a feature request.

It's a bit tedious inserting \break after every 3 or 4 measures.
Lilypond cramps things in pretty tight sometimes.

Firstly, you can change the default spacing [which I also find too cramped] — be sure to (re)read < spacing-overview#Horizontal-spacing-overview>
< horizontal-spacing#Changing-horizontal-spacing>

Secondly, if you search the list archives for "breakSet" you'll find my Scheme hack/tip.

Hope this helps!
