Hi folks,

I've been using the docs for Lilypond 2.4.2 (update: this is also relevant to the 2.5.12 docs) and I have come across one or two things that could be tweaked.

First, in section 3.3.3 "Piano centered lyrics" there is a sample template. The \layout{} section contains the lines

\layout {
         \context { \GrandStaff \accepts "Lyrics" }
         \context { \Lyrics \consists "Bar_engraver" }

I would suggest that the line

    \context { \GrandStaff \remove "Span_bar_engraver"}

be added to this section. Otherwise bar lines extend through the lyrics, which I believe is undesirable!

Second, the third paragraph in Section 5.11.2 "Entering lyrics" contains a note about certain syntactical idiosyncrasies involved when changing the LyricText defaults. Would it be possible to repeat this note in the LyricText Program Reference? I spent a huge amount of time trying to figure out why this ordinarily simple step wouldn't work, and I only came across the answer by chance when looking up something unrelated.

Do with these suggestions as you wish!

Thanks for your time folks,

Cameron Horsburgh
