As is often pointed out, it's free software and the fixes depend on who is working for nothing on the code.
```
I wouldn't think it would crop up frequently.

```
I made a workaround with a combination of forcing the accidentals to be displayed, and then using force-hshift and extra-offset and a few other tweaks to make it work.
```
```
My example is pretty complicated, because I also autogenerate the code, but you're welcome to a copy if you want.

```Thanks!

I can't believe that this is seen as a low priority enhancement...! This
```
completely renders lilypond unusable for the task I need it, which is to serve
```as a printer for computer generated music. The output is not ugly - it is
plain wrong!

Why doesn't the accidental_engraver looks into other voices as well?

```
Maybe I can workaround it by doing an extra pass before writing the lilypond code to check if this kind of problem may occur... But now I wonder what other
```kind of potential problems may occur with this accidental_engraver
algorithm...

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I think this problem deserves more
consideration.

Thank you!

This was one of the first issues I raised, in June this year.  I think it
was my first bug report:
