Thanks Aditya, for this information.
I will try to find a working solution with a float. If I cannot solve my problem I will post a minimal example, although I think that to show what I would like to do but cannot do I will need a fairly large example. 
Do I understand correctly that you also have LilyPond.app installed?

Best regards,
