Latest development version (2.13) has greatly improved the vertical spacing and has a special setting parameter for this particular case. Then you can change this spacing via \paper { score-system-spacing = #'((space . 14) (minimum-distance . 8) (padding . 1)) }``` Thanks, Xavier. I just downloaded the wrong version (!) --- ver. 2.12 --- but will have time later to obtain 2.13. Now, I'm using this within a lilypond environment of a XeLaTeX doc. Will your proposed solution still work if I've got papersize determined via the \documentclass option? ```-- United in adoration of Jesus, fr. michael gilmary, mma Most Holy Trinity Monastery 67 Dugway Road Petersham, MA 01366-9725 www.MaroniteMonks.org ```
