## Ambitus: horizontal spacing

```Hi list,

```
I think that the horizontal spacing of Ambitus isn’t optimal: IMO it has too much space on the left side (or too little on the right side). I’d suggest to change the left-hand space from 2.0 to 0.8 or maybe 1.0:
```
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\version "2.19.82"

\new ChoirStaff <<
\new Staff { c' c'' }
\new Staff { c' c'' }
>>

\layout {
\context {
\Staff
\consists Ambitus_engraver
}
\context {
\Score
\override LeftEdge.space-alist = #'((ambitus extra-space . 0.8))
}
}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Opinions? Gould remains silent about that.

Cheers,
Malte
