I usually place a system-count in the layout block inside score block.
If you choose the right number, Lilypond should break lines regularly. Rarely I need to force a line break.

I think this is a much cleaner solution than using a variable with spacing rests.

Hello Users,

I am currently looking at Realbook layouts and user expectations.
"Four Bars per Line" in a Leadsheet seems to be a pretty common request.

I know there is the method with a invisible voice that breaks the staffs. But this seems like a hack. Using content to force the layout. And it gets tiresome if you have longer pieces or time signature changes.

So, is there a different method, probably more layout oriented? I saw there is  a way to force the systems per page. So is there a bars per lines layout command? Or isn't there one?
