Comment #14 on issue 1483 by address@hidden: Lyric alignment is
wrong in 2.13.46

Second, I wonder if it might be possible to have a setting, something like make-lyrics-loose, that could be adjusted to let the user select between 2.12 and 2.13 behavior. If make-lryics-loose is #t, the staves would be placed first, then filled in with the lyrics. If make-lyrics-loose is #f, then the lyrics would be fit in as part of the sytems along with the staves.

I haven't tried it, but the docs say setting
staff-affinity to #f causes non-staff lines to
be treated as staves.  Might this do what you

At any rate, I think that with the understanding that we need to 1) use alignAboveContext for lyrics above a staff, and 2) make space for lyrics, with top-system-spacing, system-system-spacing, system-bottom-spacing, and default-staff-staff-spacing, I think we can move this bug to a Documentation bug (still Critical), if we can't fix it using the make-lyrics-loose idea from above.

The docs certainly could be improved.  I wonder if
the best approach is to visit the lyrics templates
in the LM and set these up with appropriate overrides?
One or two more to illustrate different lyric layouts
would be helpful too.
