Oh, perhaps I haven't made this clear. I have read the learning
manual.  I do not have it memorised.  I don't use extra offset all
that often.  I asked for help because the ways I know of how to move
the object, (namely looking in the IR for things that might control
positioning the object, in this case, avoid-slur) didn't work.  And
I wanted help understanding it, because usually when something
doesn't work the way I'm expecting, it's because I don't understand
what the expected behavior is.

The polemics aside, I think the most important question in this thread
is: Why haven't you found the necessary information in the manual?
Now that you know the answer (at least I hope you do), can you tell us
the reason?
There's nothing there to clue me in as to why avoid-slur didn't work.

Maybe missing references?  Missing examples?  Imprecise documentation?
The information you have searched for is in another chapter?
Something else?

Once I learned about outside staff-priority, everything was good. Which for me is the usual situation: I get unexpected output, and then learn that there's a perfectly acceptable reason for that output. In this case: outside-staff-priority takes precedence over avoid-slur. The learning manual and exra-offset were never needed.
