Thanks a lot!

This is impressive and is helping me a lot to both understand and manage my issue.

Thing is I wanted narrower accidentals, and instead of doing it the proper way and redesigning the font I hacked them with a callback with ly:stencil-scale . Then I realised I wanted the key signatures to match the accidentals inside the music and have to cover my first hack with a second, even worse one…

Then, how about using the same technique with ly:stencil-scale on the whole KeySignature stencil? If this leads to the accidentals being too close to each other, you can increase the gaps using the padding-pairs property as shown here:

Hi Leo,

Is there any way to access the stencils of individual accidentals in a key signature?

The KeySignature stencil gets constructed by combining the individual accidental stencils into one stencil, as can be seen here:

\version "2.23.7"

 \override Staff.KeySignature.stencil =
   (lambda (grob stencil)
     (pretty-print (ly:stencil-expr stencil))
 \key as \minor

But your question seems sounds like an xy problem ( What do you want to achieve exactly?
