Hello Brother Gabriel,

My piece is in B Major and the repetition of the key signature takes up a lot
of room on the page.

I would like to show it on the first staff only and suppress the rest.
That is unusual, but I’ve seen it done in hymn books on small formats.
What do I do?
The LilyPond command you want is very straightforward: \omit KeySignature.
Actually, you need Staff.KeySignature, because the KeySignature lives in Staff, not in Voice (as Bottom context).
I attach an example which also features a parallel music expression containing layout information and omits the clefs.
Only I forgot to give you my best regards before hitting ‘Send’ :-)
