lilypond distance changes from 2.11.39 to 2.18.2

Veronika Neumann
Hi there,

some time ago I created a songbook with lilypond version 2.11.39. Now
I'm working with the current lilypond version (2.18.2). And I would like
to have the output pdf (via pdflatex) look the same as with the old
version. But it doesn't. Especially the vertical distances changed, e.g.
the space between chords and staff is smaller.

Which indent/margin/distance definitions changed from version 2.11.39 to
version 2.18.2? Where can I find them (which file(s))? How can I use the
"old" layout settings with the current lilypond version?

I also have some songs that are shorter than one line. With the old
version the staff was stretched to paper width, with the new version
it's not streched and takes up only the left half of the page.

How can I reverse this behavior?

Many thanks in advance!
Veronika

Hi Veronika,

For the 2nd question:
\paper {
  ragged-right = ##f
}
at the begining of your book should solve the problem.

Regarding the first question, I do not have answers. In any case, you can always upload older version (e.g. v2.12) here:

HTH,
Cheers,
Pierre

You can't.
It's not just a matter of tweaking the old values.
The old settings were discarded just after v2.12 - names and effects.

That was so that the vertical spacing could be set up more
systematically and comprehensively: ok in the long term, but nasty in
the short term. You can see that convert-ly tries to preserve spacings
for a few simple cases, but it can't cope with the rest.

So if you want to tweak only a few things, use v2.12.3.

But if you want to be able to use the current version, you will have to
get to know the old and the new spacing parameters and work toward
settings that give the same layout.

That might be a lot of work; or it might not ...


Cheers,
Robin
