Bug/limitation in lilypond reported below!

Thank you.

I want to use the \changefont command for titling.

latexheaders = "newcommand.tex"

in the resulting *.latex file, right?

Certainly! If you want to find out what lilypond does, just add the
flag -k and look in the generated lilypond.dir/*.latex file.

This does not work. I changed to \input{newcommand.tex} and this did the job. Could I get the same without editing the *.latex file?

Run lilypond with the flag -V to see the printouts from latex.
The problem here, is that lilypond generates the files and runs latex
in a temporary directory. This means that latex will not find your
header file if you put it in the same directory as the .ly files.
One solution is to put the file in a directory where latex normally
searches for files. It seems that almost nobody has used this feature,
it was several years since this problem was discussed on the list last

Of course, it's a bug that latexheaders doesn't work when the files
are available in the working directory. I don't really know about the
best way to solve it, though.
