Since LilyPond is primarily aimed at typesetting 19th century
music, where all scores have a time signature, it prints one
by default. This means that you will have to override the defaults,
for example by adding

   \override TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f

Note that LilyPond will keep inserting bar lines every four
beats (unless you specified some other time signature).
There are different ways to typeset unmetered music, see
the manual and the mailing list archives.

May be this is not a bug. I would try Lily because I hate being all the time
trying to override defaults. So I write down:


and get a 4/4 time signature - but I don't want ANY time signature and - as far
as I know - did not ask for one.

I work with an Intel Mac. I am a composer.

Am I missing something?
