Size of Notes and Text

Jannik Jeppesen

Hi, I have a few questions to the following, wich I cannot find in the
manual.

1. Why is my single 8. notes so big, and how do I change it to the size
similar to the other notes?
2. How do I change the size of the text under the grace notes, so they are
smaller than the other text.
Hope that someone can help me find the answer...
thanx
\Jannik

I'm not clear on the problem here. I don't see any outsize notes. Are
you referring to the ones with flags rather than with beams?

markH = \markup \small "H"
markV = \markup \small "V"

c16_\markH
c_\markV

------------------

There's probably a better way, but that does it. If the letters are
still too large, use \tiny instead of \small.

Yes Im talking about the 8 notes with flags... They are very high... and
that makes the Horisontal Volta lines to be very far away from the staff...
Want the 8. notes to be only just as high as the quarter notes...  Is this
possible?
Thanx for your help

Actually I could manage, If I could just control the space between the staff
and the Volta... but cant seem to figure it out?
Something like...
       \override Volta . padding = #0.5 ???

Could anyone give me a hand...?
