I'm trying to re-produce an existing piece of pianomusic score using Lilypond. A very good learning experience! Dynamics, expression marks, slurs, arpeggios, polyphony, cross-staff beaming: I need it all.

I have now completed the basic score, using mostly standard Lilypond commands. It now looks OK, but not great. I will have to do some tweaking, which means diving deeply into the great but many pages Lilypond manuals. I don't mind that, but it would still be nice to have some help with the following questions:

1. My score has markups above the RH staff, and pedal signs below the LH staff. It also has high and low notes with ledger lines above and below the staff. Readability could be improved if I could make more space between the pianostaves, globally for the complete score , but I want to keep the distance inside the pianostaff between the RH staff and the LH staff unchanged. How to do this ?

2. I have a Dynamics context for piano-centered-dynamics, and I like working with this new context better than the template from 2.12.x (I'm using Lilypond 2.13.19 now). But the default result is not what I want yet: I already found a way to shift all dynamic signs a little bit to the right. (hopefully this will not be necessary anymore in a future Lilypond version). But there is another problem remaining. I have put in the Dynamics context also dynamic marks (\f, \p, \< etc.) and markups like "rit." , "legato" , "poco a poco". How I can I force these markups to be placed centered just like the dynamics marks? It looks really ugly like I have it now. (Let me know if you need a small example)
