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
lilypond.org/doc/latest/Documentation/notation/flexible-vertical-spacing-paper-variables.html

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
(
lilypond.org/doc/latest/Documentation/notation/fixed-vertical-spacing-paper-variables.html).

Jean Abou Samra.

I've tried the following (culled from the notation reference), but nothing happens.   \layout {   \context {     \StaffGroup     \override StaffGrouper.staffgroup-staff-spacing.basic-distance = #30     \override StaffGrouper.staffgroup-staff-spacing.minimum-distance = #30   } } What am I missing, please?
