I typically solve this problem by using a separate \new Dynamics entry. I find that this a) helps align the dynamics more easily with staff objects, and b) aligns the dynamics vertically as opposed to having them be various distances from the staff. \version "2.20.0" \language "english" \new PianoStaff << \new Staff { \...

This solution may be a start. It's a function to offset a note individually. The value 1.2 is the amount needed to shift the note to the other side of the stem. horOff = #(define-music-function (parser location x-off music) (number? ly:music?) (set! (ly:music-property music 'tweaks) (acons 'extra-offset (cons x-off 0) (ly:music-...

The most important pecularity of full scores I'm aware of are more frequent clef changes (contrary to what you observe in bassoon), with the intention to reduce ledger lines. Too many ledger lines can easily break the space restrictions of the page layout. Some other space-saving strategies are: Leave out instruments, which don't play in the respective bars ...

Even in a Concert Pitch score, the instruments that are written an octave away from their sounding pitch continue to be so. The octave transposition of piccolo, double bass etc. don't count as 'transposing'. In this particular score, Romeo & Juliet, you're also seeing some peculiarly Russian conventions. Russian composers were strangely fond of alto ...

Instruments such as piccolo, contrabassoon, and contrabass, which sound in a different octave from the written octave, are generally not considered to be transposing instruments, because the music is written in the same key as it is played in. Alto clef is a different clef, not a transposition. Traditionally, trombones would be in an alto-tenor-bass trio, ...

You can tell LilyPond to space the notes strictly based on their note values, with the command below (I think this is what you are looking for): \override Score.SpacingSpanner.strict-note-spacing = ##t (see changing-horizontal-spacing) You might think that this will make the music easier to read, as the notes will be on some evenly spaced (invisible) time ...

My friend assist me to defined those Lilybin lines, in order to add additional grafical to wood-wind diagram: \version "2.22.1" % LilyBin #(define-markup-command (woodwind-diagram-x layout props instrument user-draw-commands) (symbol? list?) #:properties ((upper-hole1 #f) (size 1) (thickness 0.1) ...

You can create new patterns using Scheme: Creating new diagrams is possible, although this will require Scheme ability and may not be accessible to all users. The patterns for the diagrams are in ‘scm/define-woodwind-diagrams.scm’ and ‘scm/display-woodwind-diagrams.scm’.

Here is the relevant portion in the documentation: Custom layout for headers and footers To customize the placement of the text fields, use either or both of the following \paper variables: - oddHeaderMarkup - evenHeaderMarkup - oddFooterMarkup - evenFooterMarkup As of version 2.22.0, line 172 of ./usr/share/lilypond/current/ly/titling-init.ly ...

Taking a cue from this answer on the lilypond-user listserv, how about this? \version "2.20.0" #(define-markup-command (forceLeft layout props content) (markup?) (interpret-markup layout props #{ \markup \fill-line { #content \null } #} )) \header { copyright = \markup \forceLeft "Left-aligned copyright" ...
