## taglines and vertical alignment

 From: Suzanne Blatt Subject: taglines and vertical alignment Date: Wed, 06 Nov 2002 09:04:55 -0400

Hello.  I'm new to Lilypond and am running version 1.4.10 on SUSE.  I'm having difficulty with 2 things:

1.  I want to redefine the tagline alignment - I want it centered.  I tried using the 'self-alignment-X=(0) on the 'tagline = ' but that isn't correct.  Where would I adjust this and what code would I use?

2.  I have read in the archives where this vertical alignment was a problem, corrected by using

\property Staff.minimumVerticalExtent = #'(-4 . 4)

I have tried this code under the \score and get the following problem:

my lyrics are extending all over the place and I get the 'lyrics don't have noteheads' error.

and under \paper I get the follwoing error message:

parse error back trace *1}

Can anyone sort this out for me?  WHERE should the syntax go and what do I do to preserve the alignment of my lyrics?

Thanks,

Suzie
