First of all, I hope you realize that a tie only makes sense, musically,
within one voice. In spite of that, there's an example file in the
Tips and Tricks document that shows exactly how to produce a tie across
two voices:

If you send an example, it might be easier to comment
on the specific problems you see.

For the ties to alternative endings, the best solution available today
is to use an invisible note in the second ending, see
for an example.

I recently downloaded Lilypond 2.0 and entered several piano music songs (which I submitted to Mutopia.) First of all I think the program does a good job of fufilling its promise and produces a very nice output. It is fairly easy to use for 90% of the music entry. However, dealing with ties, especially with music which has a considerable amount of polyphony (with ties crossing voices) was very time consuming. I never did find an aesthetically pleasing way of dealing with ties in the /repeat volta /alternative structure. Since beauty is one of your goals I would consider the aesthetically displeasing workarounds needed for this structure to be a bug. Is there any plans to fix this in the future? I Thanks
