Simple: don’t use MS Word to edit LilyPond code. A rich text editor is not a 
good tool to edit raw text. Taking an analogy, this request sounds a bit as if 
you were trying to cut bread with your fingernails and complained that your 
nail varnish prevented you from doing that. Just don’t do it that way :-)

Do you have any particular reason not to use LilyPad all way through?

At any rate, LilyPad is gone in 2.23, we now only distribute binaries of 
LilyPond, without a minimalistic GUI. Instead, we recommend editors like 
Frescobaldi. I strongly recommend you try it, for me it was a relief.

All the best,
