\caps is just a short-hand command for \smallCaps, but this situation is
obviously a code bug. You CAN put the \caps or \smallCaps in the header
variable itself:

piece = \markup \smallCaps "Piece"

and then it works, but since it seems that you are trying to create a
custom title that does this automatically, this solution may not be
suitable for you. I'm forwarding this small example to the bugs-list for


Is it anything to do with this?



\version "2.19.11"

\paper {
  scoreTitleMarkup = \markup {
    \column {
      \on-the-fly \print-all-headers { \bookTitleMarkup \hspace #1 }
      \fill-line {
        \large \bold \smallCaps \fromproperty #'header:piece

\header {
  title = "Title"
  piece = "Piece"  % put the \smallCaps in here and it works

{ \repeat unfold 3 { s1 \break } }

Hi Shane,

\version "2.19.11"

Even with \smallCaps (how did I miss that!?!!?) the test stays the
same. Bold and Large are both working but not the small caps.

Which version are you using? and is it not \smallcaps that you need to
issue? Also does the font actually have small caps natively?
