Thanks, this will help me to get good output from the
converted input files (i.e. without shifted lyrics...
:-) I have downloaded the input files as well as the
original pdf's from (great site
dedicated to the music of T.L. de Victoria) and the
pdf files are of poor quality - it seems like there
were no type 1 fonts in Lilypond 1.4 ...

Anyway, it would still be nice if this issue with ties
could be addressed in future versions of convert-ly. 

The choir, I sing is, is preparing a performance of
Victoria's Officio Defunctorum and I decided to
typeset a barless part in alto cleff for myself (I
sing alto and as a former pianist I decided I need
some training in reading alto cleff :-) instead of
singing from the score with all voices in modern
clefs. I have the input files for the score and I'm
making this part - so I manually replace all tied
notes with their real lenght notes, etc. - i.e. the
trick you proposed won't work here.

Anyway, thanks for quick and (partially) helpfull
