Re: Defining custom symbols

I'm not setting the size to "quarto", I'm asking basically how to disable fixed page sizing. I want the output to be like the attached image, zero white-space. I made this by cropping the image in gimp, doing that for every one would be a nightmare.

\version "2.18.2"
\include "larsen-symbols.ily"

    \time 2/2

    g'2\cut | g'2\strike |

I'm pretty sure the attached pdf isn't "quarto".

Could you share your code?
