I just came across the Orchestral template in LM A.6.I, and noticed two flaws, one minor and one serious: – Double basses usually aren’t notated in a \clef "bass_8", but as transposing instruments (originating from the time when they were sharing a staff with the violoncelli). All the scores I have here, from Beethoven through Mendelssohn, Bruckner and Mahler to Hindemith, confirm this. I attach a version of the template where this is changed. – The image rendition in the docs is extremely compressed, with overlapping stuff, staves touching one another &c. This is a really bad example and needs to be changed; how is this done? I don’t know the framework in lilypond-book-preamble.ly; certainly there will be someone who can quickly say how to allow the score more space.

Yours, Simon
