I recently updated lilypond from 2.18 to 2.22. Since then the rendered svg files differ from the pdf files. The fonts used in title, composer, poet, lyrics change the distance of staffs so that a song that is rendered to one page in pdf, is rendered to two pages in svg. In lilypond 2.18 pdf and svg files where exactly the same. Any help?

Could you provide an example?

It's a known issue that the current SVG backend does
not embed fonts in the output files, leading to rendering
discrepancies; however, I find differing numbers of pages
surprising, and that might hide another bug.

You may want to try out experimental binaries using the
Cairo backend:


With these, the fonts are embedded. You need to run lilypond
with --svg -dbackend=cairo. These binaries come with all
the warnings related to experimental code.
