See discussion here:

In 1.2, Advanced command line options for LilyPond

While updating the italian Usage manual I found this new option:

@item @code{crop}
@tab @code{#f}
@tab Match the size of the normal output to the typeset image.

The description is quite blurry and I can't come up with a good translation (unless I change the words completely). What is "normal output"? I know you mean the actual content, without margins or tagline. Then I would just say that it crops the margins and tagline (while title is kept).


Suggested description: "Compress all the music and headers in a single-page output file without margins."

Try a simple example like:

$ cat 
\version "2.19.80"

\header { title = "Crop test" }
\relative {
  \repeat unfold 100 { c1*4 }

Run lilypond -dcrop and you'll get three files:
