Hi Janek & Bill,

thanks for your replies! Both do basically what I was trying to get, but Janek's suggestion is more elegant.

Just for the record: I have seen the set-global-staff-size before, but since there is more than one score in a book, I went with the layout-set-staff-size parameter which according to the manual ( should do the same as the global parameter but just for a single \layout directive. However, if I use the layout-set-staff-size, everything seems to be scaled except the spaces between the lines within a staff. That doesn't look good at all. That's why I thought the set-***-size parameters just control very individual parts of the score.
Anyway, now I'm not sure it's really meant that way.

Also, if I use the set-global-staff-size parameter in a book-environment, I get an error in the console ("unexpected SCM_TOKEN") but the parameter works anyway ...

Thanks again and best wishes,

What's happening right now is that, if space becomes too small, the
space between the staffs is reduced while the notes themselves stay in
their size, s.t. the staffs are just being "pushed into each other".

I'm not sure if i understood correctly, but maybe
#(set-global-staff-size 15)
