José Luis-


Thank you for your suggestions. I obviously need to find a reference for latex. It's hard to speak the language when you don't know which words are allowed!

You could experiment with embeded latex commands like:

composer =      "\\begin{minipage}[c]{8cm}
Adapted from a afamiliar melody \\newline
\\hfill by John Doe
\\end{minipage}"

I've not tested it, so I'm almost sure that the output won't fit
exactly what you want, but I hope you'd get the idea.

Feel free to use alignement environments (right, left or centered)
and/or another things you need.

P.S. When lilypond reads "\something", and it is not a
lilypond command, sends "something" to latex interpreter, so whatever
is after the bar "\" must be a latex command. I mean that you must
write latex commands with a double bar ("\\latexcommand")

Excuse my english ;)

I would like to control where the line breaks in a header entry.
Specifically, as below:

composer = "Adapted from a familiar melody by John Doe"

so the output would be (right justified)

by John Doe

Can a carriage return/line feed be embedded?

A related question is how umlauts, e.g.,  are placed within header
text.

I would be grateful for any suggestions.
