4.1.4 Flexible vertical spacing
In most cases, it is preferable for the vertical distances between
certain items (such as margins, titles, systems, and separate
scores) to be flexible, so that they stretch and compress nicely
according to each situation. A number of
(listed below) are available to fine-tune the stretching behavior
of these dimensions.
Note that the
\paper variables discussed in this section do
not control the spacing of staves within individual systems.
Within-system spacing is controlled by grob properties, with
settings typically entered inside a
\layout block, and not inside a
\paper block. See
Flexible vertical spacing within systems.
