Hi Miroslaw,

again: this is not a very good bug report as described on our website: <lilypond.org/bug-reports.html>. Please be specific, report one well-defined problem and not a major rant of seven items. As Thomas already said – code examples are quasi-mandatory, except for very special cases.

LilyPond’s automatic formatting is very good, but it doesn’t work equally well in every possible case. For that, tweaks are available, like \shape. (You’ll find that in the manuals.)

5. When developer thinks to make project of music notation software,
he has to decide, what interface will be using by future software.

I can assure you that a lot of thought has gone into the development of LilyPond… and some really good thought, as well, I daresay.

has to be sure that his future software will do with beautiful slurs
and ties.

I don’t think LilyPond needs to hide from its competition, even in that respect.

6. I think that LilyPond is not "music notation for everyone" but only
for specialists.

Well, if you don’t like it, nobody forces you to keep with it…

Best, Simon
