Hi Urs,

the OLY way is the way to go, but for inspiration I share my little hack that was doing its job quite well on short notice.

Hi all,

I'm preparing an automated edition process using LuaLaTeX, Pandoc and

After some experimentation I have come to the conclusion that I'll have to
insert the multi-movement score as a single PDF created by LilyPond (but
through lyluatex to make use of caching and the layout mechanics).

I first had used lyluatex's facility to include the score's system by system
and print all the titles with LaTeX, but this didn't work out - for the
first time I realized that makes the vertical
staff-staff spacing as tight as possible, which often makes the page layout
pretty bad. Creating the movements separately is not an option either
because not all movements will start on a new page.

So now I have included a multi-movement score in the LaTeX document and
don't know how to add TOC entries (in LaTeX) for the movements. I can see
two possible ways, but don't know if they are really possible and if so how
to approach them:

Is it possible to insert something in the PDF output that LaTeX can pick up
as TOC entries?
(actually I doubt this is possible, but since it would be the easiest way I
thought I'd ask anyway)
Can I reliably retrieve the current page number of a given score's title
With that information I could write them to a log file and read that later
in LaTeX.


PS: I don't know if it matters but the file is produced using
ly:book-process etc.

do what you want?
