Hi Robert, Hmm. I have played around with this a bit. I think if you are using safe mode of necessity then you simply can't use lilypond for this use case. Sooner or later you have to mix Lilypond and Scheme, and it is forbidden in safe mode. Transforming the code for the cut from the repo in

Hi Robert, I myself have never used safe mode, but according to the NR: It is also not possible to import LilyPond variables into Scheme while in safe mode. Therefore the present code will not work as written. I'll take a look at it. Andrew On 16 April 2018 at 06:48, Robert Hickman

Strongly recommend using 2.19.81, especially if I am going to help you out extending this symbol code library. The wording of unstable on the website is open source over modesty, a conventional trope. The latest releases are very stable, and I bang away at them all day on very very complex scores

I'm not setting the size to "quarto", I'm asking basically how to disable fixed page sizing. I want the output to be like the attached image, zero white-space. I made this by cropping the image in gimp, doing that for every one would be a nightmare. \version "2.18.2" \include "larsen-symbols.ily"

I'm trying to set the page size so that it automatically matches the size of the staff with zero margins. Looking at the documentation on this shows the following command, but I cannot see how to set it to scale 'as big or small as needed'. The section on automatic scaling isn't clear as this

Hi Robert, Using a font is not how this is done in lilypond. It's a matter of defining new symbols that can be used by the engraver modules for the notes, like articulations and so on. This is fairly advanced to build from scratch, but you can just use the results of the work I pointed to as a
