    % The first footnote works as expected.

Greetings, Dan -

Please check out 3.2.3 Creating footnotes
<http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/Documentation/notation/creating-footnotes> in
the Notation Reference.


I've read that section several times. I am trying to put text at a particular place in the music that says "(rit)*". This text should not draw a line to a particular note but just be under where the note appears. Then there needs to be a footnote about the rit. I did not see anything in that section showing how to achieve this (or at least anything that works). It is quite possible I'm just being dense.
