Is this possible? is it documented (and I am blind)? or is this impossible? Well not easy to find. In paper-defaults-init.ly, you have some variable controlling Footnotes. By default, the settings are \paper {  footnote-separator-markup = \markup \fill-line { \override #'(span-factor . 1/2) \draw-hline }  footnote-padding = 0.5\mm  footnote-footer-padding = 0.5\mm  footnote-number-raise = 0.5\mm  footnote-numbering-function = #numbered-footnotes  reset-footnotes-on-new-page = ##t } If you set : footnote-separator-markup = \markup \null it will do the trick. Gilles Thank you again for this hint which works perfectly. (and BTW looking into this I had the opportunity to understand something new about lily's workings ...) But I have a new question in this context: How can I override the font that is used for footnotes? Footnotes use markups, so you should be able to control the font within the markup: http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.15/Documentation/notation/formatting-text#selecting-font-and-font-size Yes, but as mentioned I want to override it for the whole document, and I didn't find a place where this is possible. Ah, sorry, missed that bit. You can likely kludge your way through this - basically, you want to write a dummy callback for a property that'll be consulted no matter what (something like Y-extent).  This can read the markup stashed in the 'footnote-text property, wrap it in a font override, reset the footnote-text property with the new markup, and then return whatever Y-extent was supposed to return (the default is #f). Cheers, MS OK, I was already afraid it would look something like that. As this is way over my head, I'd rather to it by hand in the current project :-( Or, another idea I missed to mention in my earlier post: I can write a markup function to call from the footnote text. This isn't automatical but of course at least document (or project) wide. Can you tell me how I can override font-name from within a markup function? I only understood how to access properties like \italic (#:italic) etc. Best Urs Best Urs ```_______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list address@hidden https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user ```
