Moving of lyrics in LilyPond version 2.18.2.

1. In song books sometimes after each verse of lyrics is put an
asterisk (*). Using it implies that syllable is moved left too much.
2. I have not find solution for it in manuals.
3. My solution not perfect: putting three (sometimes two or four)
linked underscores befor syllable not separately, i.e.: "syl-
___lable_*". If done, placment of syllables and staff objects are
printed correctly.
4. I received solution: using overriding of self-alignment-X:
left-aligned = { \once \override LyricText.self-alignment-X = #LEFT }
center-aligned = { \once \override LyricText.self-alignment-X = #CENTER }
right-aligned = { \once \override LyricText.self-alignment-X = #1 }
5. It is not a point I did mean. When an asterisk (*) is put after a
syllable, it is centered by default. That implies that main part of
syllable is not centered. The point is: adding an asterisk should not
move syllable, a print has to be the same after adding the asterisk —
not move left. So the solution (4. as above) with overriding of
self-alignment-X to left — is not perfect.
