I have read this - well most of this section before, but when I try it I still get the same results. Perhaps someone could help me out a little, please?

Please keep the replies on list, so they can be of benefit to all.

On 2.13.58, the \override VerticalAxizGroup #'minimum-Y-extent command is no
longer used to control spacing.

Please read the section in the documentation on flexible vertical spacing
variables (Notation Reference 4.4.1).

There is an example there that shows how to center lyrics between staves.
