This problem appeared in a multi-staff score. Usage of \repeat was not uniform across staffs. When correcting this, the closing double bar printed correctly.

I'm assuming you are turning a hand- written score into a digital one. You're problem is that you have written this: f8 b4 a8[ g] f2 The key signature shows that F, A, and G need to be sharped, but you've written then as naturals. Try this: fis8 b4 ais8[ gis] fis2 The "-is" tells Lilypond that you want that note sharped, an "-es" tells ...

LilyPond places bars automatically on full measures. The partial bar at the end of a stanzaed piece with pickup, however, wants a double bar line (different from the defaul) anyway. So you'd write it d4.~ d4 \bar "|." and LilyPond will place the ending bar line wherever it currently happens to be within the measure. You don't need to fiddle with the ...

My first guess would be that you are actually writing in Bb major rather than B major and are omitting that fact from LilyPond (in that case, the key signature would be \key bes \major and have a single flat). Bb major would be a much more common key to use. In this case, your file would likely just need \language "deutsch" on top, interpreting all ...

You can use an s8 to fill out the measure, and cause the barline to draw. The s a spacer note -- it takes up time, but doesn't result in anything displayed. As far as requiring the partial bar at the end: it is my impression that the degree to which it is required is somewhat genre dependent: I've never seen traditional music, or hymns for that matter, ...

I think it's not essential that the last measure compensate for the pickup. I certainly wouldn't be confused or bothered at all by the lack of it, and it might actually confuse people who are new to music. It doesn't provide any benefit other than aesthetics. In Finale I would do this by making the last bar a 5/8 bar and having it display as a 6/8 bar so ...

I found the answer: The MWE is \paper { system-system-spacing #'basic-distance = #20 } \new PianoStaff << \new Staff \relative c'' { c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c ...

This works for 2.18 (can't easily check 2.16), obtained from here in the documentation <pre> \new PianoStaff \with { \override StaffGrouper.staff-staff-spacing.basic-distance = #44 } << \new Staff \relative c'' { c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c c c c | c ...

I would recommend to ask on the LilyPond user list. You can fiddle around with stuff like \version "2.18.2" \new Staff \with { \accepts "ChordNames" \accepts "Lyrics" } { \relative c' { c4 d e f } \stopStaff \chords { c d:m e:m f } \lyrics { "Some text." } } but once you start having more detailed needs (like adjusting alignment and sizes and ...
