## Custom page size in LaTeX causes lilypond-book to produce bad output.

 Greetings: In Lilypond 2.2, I used to LaTeX with the vmargin package to define a custom paper size for a 1/2 size songbook.  With lilypond 2.6, simply including the vmargin  package ( just \include[vmargin] -- it's part of a typical TeX installation) causes lilypond-book to produce a score with the first measure of the first system placed up beside the title block for the piece. Has anyone found a way to change page dimensions in this way? Does anyone know what might be tripping Lilypond up? Thanks in advance. _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

## Re: Custom page size in LaTeX causes lilypond-book to produce bad output.

 I cannot repeat the problem. Could you please send a small but complete example file that illustrates the problem to the mailing list? Personally, I have always used the geometry package to get custom page sizes in LaTeX. Also, if the only purpose of using lilypond-book is to get the page size, I hope you realize that it can be done also within LilyPond. Some additional information has been added in the manual for version 2.7, that also should be relevant to you, see http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.7/Documentation/user/out-www/lilypond/Paper-size.html#Paper-size  /Mats Michael Haynie wrote: > Greetings: > > In Lilypond 2.2, I used to LaTeX with the vmargin package to define a > custom paper size for a 1/2 size songbook.  With lilypond 2.6, simply > including the vmargin  package ( just \include[vmargin] -- it's part > of a typical TeX installation) causes lilypond-book to produce a score > with the first measure of the first system placed up beside the title > block for the piece. > > Has anyone found a way to change page dimensions in this way? > > Does anyone know what might be tripping Lilypond up? > > Thanks in advance. > > > > _______________________________________________ > lilypond-user mailing list > [hidden email] > http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user-- =============================================         Mats Bengtsson         Signal Processing         Signals, Sensors and Systems         Royal Institute of Technology         SE-100 44  STOCKHOLM         Sweden         Phone: (+46) 8 790 8463         Fax:   (+46) 8 790 7260         Email: [hidden email]         WWW: http://www.s3.kth.se/~mabe============================================= _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
