Hi Alexander,


Ugh, I just recognized that this actually is not arbitrary.  \vspace creates a
vertical space of argument /amount/ _multiplied by 3_.
Which does not make sense to me - why * 3? - but okay, then I see why the value
is about a third, +- foot-separation.


Would this be fixed by using \put-mm instead? Unlike \vspace, it doesn't put in
["arbitrary"] vertical space.


Hi, Kieren,


thanks for the suggestion; I did not see the \put-mm definition before, and it has it's place now in my snippet list. For this very problem, though, it's just a change of scale; the \vspace amount is not "arbitrary" anymore now that I found out the *3 multiplier. To specify a mm scale amount for the negative padding of bottom-system-space requires a similar definition as \put-mm, so it does not really matter where to do this work.


Cheers,
Alexander
