Re: Using Lilypond in LaTeX

  That worked like a charm. I used 20 for my staff size but that is obviously not the game changer!

I thought I had tried the ragged-right fix but I must have done it wrong.

Thanks again,

I would like to make sure that all staves on one page be the same width.
Is there a way to force the line-width to be a certain size AND (sorry for
shouting) force the staves (across separate \begin{lilypond} \end{lilypond}
blocks) to fill the lines so they are the same width across the page?
I have done something like this:


\layout {
  line-width = #150
  ragged-last = ##f
  ragged-last-bottom = ##f
  ragged-right = ##f
  ragged-bottom = ##f

\score {
  \new PianoStaff \with {
 \override SpacingSpanner #'uniform-stretching = ##t
} <<
     \set Score.tempoHideNote = ##t


I am sure that this is wrong and that I have cut and pasted a bunch of stuff
that I don't really need. Any help that you could give would be greatly

In my counterpoint workbook I use included lilypond files for the
exercises, each of which has the following parameters defined:

\paper {
 ragged-right = ##f

global = {
 #(set-global-staff-size 24)

With only these two parameters defined, all of my exercises are the
same staffsize and fill the same width of page. If you're interested
you can see the source code and pdf here:
