List of flexible vertical spacing \paper variables

The names of these variables follow the format upper-lower-spacing, where upper and lower are the items to be spaced. Each distance is measured between the reference points of the two items (see the description of the alist structure above). Note that in these variable names, the term ‘markup’ refers to both title markups (bookTitleMarkup or scoreTitleMarkup) and top-level markups (see File structure). All distances are measured in staff spaces.

Default settings are defined in ly/paper-defaults-init.ly.

markup-system-spacing

the distance between a (title or top-level) markup and the system that follows it.

score-markup-spacing

the distance between the last system of a score and the (title or top-level) markup that follows it.

score-system-spacing

the distance between the last system of a score and the first system of the score that follows it, when no (title or top-level) markup exists between them.

system-system-spacing

the distance between two systems in the same score.

markup-markup-spacing

the distance between two (title or top-level) markups.

last-bottom-spacing

the distance from the last system or top-level markup on a page to the bottom of the printable area (i.e., the top of the bottom margin).

top-system-spacing

the distance from the top of the printable area (i.e., the bottom of the top margin) to the first system on a page, when there is no (title or top-level) markup between the two.

top-markup-spacing

the distance from the top of the printable area (i.e., the bottom of the top margin) to the first (title or top-level) markup on a page, when there is no system between the two.
