Yes thanx for the reply
But this is the point of my question:
When you use lilypond-book for compiling lilypond scores in a tex book,
the doc says clearly that it does only \score statement.
If i put the \paper statement within the \score statement lilypond is not at all happy:

error: \paper cannot be used in \score, use \layout instead

\paper {

so the problem is to verticaly padd the systems .

how i am trying to see.

i don't believe this to be a bug (or is it one ?)

using lilypond-book in the doc it is clearly stated "Only the first \score of a LilyPond block is processed."

so i believe that the \paper block won't work.

Why "believe" when you can easily try it yourself with a small
example? I see no reason why it shouldn' work (a \paper block
is definitely not a \score block).


how to use then :

\paper {
  systemSeparatorMarkup = \slashSeparator
  #(define page-breaking ly:optimal-breaking)
  between-system-space = 3.5\cm
  between-system-padding = #5

inside a score block?
using it in layout doesn't work .
Any ideas.

It should be used since the space berween systems are really narrow and while using lyrics, these are very close to the bottom system. Is it a bug or is there a workaround ?
