Hi, I'm a relatively new gregorio an latex user, so forgive me if I'm missing the obvious, or a previous relevant conversation.

I'd like to better manage a large latex document that inporporates many gabc files, by breaking it down into a master tex document and a number of sub-documents, inorprated into main with \include.  Each of the sub-documents has text and one or more invocations of \gregorioscore.

\include requires me to strip all preamble from the included document, i.e. everything up to and including \begin{document}, and \end{document}.

Long story short: when I do this and compile the main document, I get underfill and overfill errors that I didn't get when I compiled the sub-documemnts seperately (with their preamble).  My question is: can I \include sub-documents that emloy gregorio, or is that not possible?

Does the final output PDF still look as you expected? In my experience, I'll somewhat frequently see underfill and overfill messages but still get a perfectly fine PDF file at the end.

Thanks for the reply, Br. Anthony.  Allas, the PDF includes the text from the included .tex file, but not the chant.

'm going to answer my own question, as I worked out what the problem was.

My included sub-document gave a path to the gregorio score (gabc file) relative to the sub-document's location. When I changed the path to give it from the master document's location the compilation succeeded, and a pdf was output which included the gregorio score.

Hello Ian,

If I am not mistaken, this in turn breaks the compilation of the individual .tex files.

A great solution to this problem is the package subfiles, which has a macro to fix relative paths that would otherwise break when building either the master document or one of the individual files.

This is what I use for the Nocturnale Romanum : look at https://github.com/Nocturnale-Romanum/nocturnale-romanum

(Kind of a bad example because the main nocturnale-romanum.tex and the many subfiles are in the same directory, but it should work if they were not.

Shout-out to our very own Rob Leduc for pointing me to this solution at the time I was starting the project.

In Christo,
