Hi Jean,

Thanks. I found you also have to set ragged-bottom to ##f as well.

Best regards,

Hi Peter,
Any overrides you can do in StaffGrouper are related to the space between staves
of the _same_ system when they are grouped in StaffGroup-s or such. They have
nothing to do with the space _between_ different systems. To influence that, you
need \paper variables as described in

For example:

\paper {
  system-system-spacing.basic-distance = 30

Althought in your case, if you just want the score to fit the whole page, you may just need

\paper {
  ragged-last-bottom = ##f

which will cause the score to fit the entire page

How to increase the distance between staves?
I want to increase the distance between the staves in a short 1-page piece. I've tried the following (culled from the notation reference), but nothing happens.
\layout {
  \context {
    \override StaffGrouper.staffgroup-staff-spacing.basic-distance = #30
    \override StaffGrouper.staffgroup-staff-spacing.minimum-distance = #30

What am I missing, please?
