I've included the files as instructed and it seems to be working fine when applied to the first case. I did need to tweak LyricExtender.minimum-length, as I wanted them to show up more often than they were, but a simple override in my score fixed that nicely (I assume that I'll need to keep

Absent a way to make Frescobaldi apply the command-line argument, I came up with the following solution: To the lyluatex preamble I added a flag which indicated the use of lyluatex (similar to what lilypond-book does): #(define inside-lyluatex #t) This change has been merged into

In Frescobaldi you can choose the Engrave (custom) option which lets you add to the command line, and remembers the last used setting. I'd never noticed that option. However, after trying it I don't like that it pulls up the dialog each time. This slows me down because it requires me to

Re: lilypond-book: Special characters in filenames using \lilypondfile with LaTeX

Not sure about quotes, but LaTeX, as a rule, hates spaces in filenames. They should be avoided at all costs in LaTeX documents. Even though lilypond-book is a preprocessor (and thus not subject to the same restrictions), it thus wouldn't surprise me that it is the same way. --

LilyPond is not a LaTeX package, but a standalone program for typesetting music. To combine LilyPond and LaTeX output into the same document, you have several possibilities: 1) lilypond-book: http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/Documentation/usage/lilypond_002dbook This is a pre-processor script
