4.1.3 Fixed vertical spacing \paper variables

Nota: Some \paper dimensions are automatically scaled to the paper size, which may lead to unexpected behavior. See Automatic scaling to paper size.

Default values (before scaling) are defined in ‘ly/paper-defaults-init.ly’.

paper-height

The height of the page, unset by default. Note that the automatic scaling of some vertical dimensions is not affected by this.

top-margin

The margin between the top of the page and the top of the printable area. If the paper size is modified, this dimension’s default value is scaled accordingly.

bottom-margin

The margin between the bottom of the printable area and the bottom of the page. If the paper size is modified, this dimension’s default value is scaled accordingly.

ragged-bottom

If set to true, systems will not spread vertically down the page. This does not affect the last page. This should be set to true for pieces that have only two or three systems per page, for example orchestral scores.

ragged-last-bottom

If set to false, systems will spread vertically down the last page. Pieces that amply fill two pages or more should have this set to false. It also affects the last page of book parts, i.e. parts of a book created with \bookpart blocks.

Problemi noti e avvertimenti

The titles (from the \header block) are treated as a system, so ragged-bottom and ragged-last-bottom will add space between the titles and the first system of the score.

Explicitly defined paper-sizes will override any user-defined top or bottom margin settings.
