If I have a score containing only an s8 spacer rest, the staff lines will

to the time signature without staff lines) and in some cases they are too long.
Attached is an example.
Any idea where the problem is and how it might be fixed?

The other problem appears with the key signature, when you remove the
Clef_engraver (because sometimes you only want to print the original key
signature in an incipit of a critical edition): The key signature has no
padding on the left, so it starts even a little bit before the staff lines...

That case is also included in the example.

Any ideas how these issues can be fixed?

Hi Reinhold,

Would proportional notation help?

Like the attached?
