Hi Aaron,

thanks for looking into this.

Firstly, alignment values outside the interval [-1, 1] in general behave oddly as the result depends on the size of the object in question.  Larger things do end up moving more.

Well, I wouldn’t call that ‘odd’ since it is a very useful effect and I very often use alignment values other than -1 or 1, which makes it intuitive to work with. The step from 0.8 to 1 is the same as the step from 1 to 1.2.

Secondly, LyricText has parent-alignment-X set to '() which, as far as I can tell, results in inheriting self-alignment-X. Choosing #RIGHT, for example, means to have the right side of the text align with the right edge of the note.

That’s unexpected and explains it perfectly. I will set parent-alignment-X to 0 in my default style sheet.

However, it may be worthwhile opening a ticket like “Unset parent-alignment-X causes unexpected behaviour” IMO.

Best, Simon
