In principle, you can do

However, most of the paper variables you mention in your
example below will not be taken into account when you use
lilypond-book, since each score line is typeset as a single
EPS file and if you want to affect what happens between the
score lines, then you have to do that in LaTeX, by defining
the LaTeX function \betweenLilyPondSystem which is called
between each system. See the manual.

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.

Quoting karim haddad <address@hidden>:


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 ?
