For this, the convention is to post what is known as a Minimal Working
Example (MWE). Then people are willing to help out because they don't have
to recreate a complex part of a score from scratch. So reduce this to one
slurred example, and post the code, eliminating everything that is
unnecessary to make the point under discussion. Also, giving an MWE means
that people can post code as an answer, not just a verbal description.

There is a \shape function in lilypond. But there is a much more capable
function called \shapeII in the openlilylib library, which is a collection
of code that is useful and powerful but for one reason or another has not
been incorporated into the baseline lilypond code.

Investigate the github repository:


Openlilylib is one demonstration of the ability to extend and enhance
lilypond, and I find it indispensable.

And don't forget the Lilypond Snippet Repository, a collection of ways of
doing things that are not immediately obvious. Idioms, if you like.


And lastly, don't forget you can search the mailing list user archives:


Hope this helps. Sorry if some of this is a repetition of other posts.
