Ah, relief at last. This just works. Thanks. I just could NOT figure this out, working from the documentation, for some reason.

With much appreciation.

Try putting the line below in the \paper block and test different values for the settings:

between-system-spacing = #'((space . 4) (padding . 4) (stretchability . 4) (minimum-distance . 0))

This is simply making me nuts. NOTHING I'm trying is having any effect on inter-staff distance at all.

Here's the current non-working attempt to increase the distance -

\score {
  \context Staff = "guitar" \with {
  \consists "Span_arpeggio_engraver"
  \override VerticalAxisGroup #'next-staff-spacing = #'((padding . 10))
%\set Staff.instrumentName="Classical Guitar" %puts name to left of line one
  \set Staff.midiInstrument="acoustic guitar (nylon)"
  \set Staff.connectArpeggios = ##t
  \context Voice = "melody" \melody
  \context Voice = "alto" \alto
  \context Voice = "bass" \bass

 \layout {
   indent = 0.0\cm % remove indent on first staff

 \midi { %causes generation of midi score

The critical statement -

\override VerticalAxisGroup #'next-staff-spacing = #'((padding . 10))

I have not been able to get much information about. It seems not to be in the Notation manual index. I don't know what to set the padding value to - but changing it to extreme values doesn't seem to matter, so I must have it place wrong.

I could really use some help...

My mistake. The problem isn't "collisions". It's inter-staff distance, which I'm not finding a way to increase. Can you help me do that?

It may not help much, but I've just compiled the file with 2.13.17 and had no collisions to speak of. For printing header information on every page, see section 3 of the notation reference. I even think that odd/even page header may work in the development version, although I'm not sure.

Have just installed developmental ver. "2.13.16" and run convert-ly on all my scores.

I got this CLI message when running the conversion:

"Not smart enough to convert vertical spacing has been changed; minimum-Y-extent is obsolete.
Please refer to the manual for details, and update manually.2.13.16 "

Not very helpful, at least not to me, because I don't know how to fix the problem.

All my staves are now vertically crowded. I've tried a number of things to fix it - and now my head is completely muddled.

I'm working out of the Notation manual section "4.1.2 Page formatting" ...and nothing has worked. Hasn't had any effect at all, in fact. I'm guessing I'm putting stuff in the wrong place. I'm running out of time now.

My code is here:

It's only 5 lines of music, but they crowd into each other unacceptably. It's free of any of my failed change attempts.

So, two questions:

1. How can I get space between the staves?
