```Hi all,
i have a melisma at the end of a sentence, like here:

\version "2.13.45"
{
\new Voice { c'8 d'4 e'8( c' f'4. g2 c'8 )}
\addlyrics { ex -- ten -- der. __ }
}

i'd like the dot to appear after the extender (like in the bottom of
the attachment).
How can this be done? Manuals seem to say nothing about this, as well
as the mailing list archive.

cheers,
Janek

Jan,

```
According to the normal engraving manuals, the punctuation should be attached to the lyric, not the extender. e.g.
```
```
Kurt Stone: "punctuation must appear in its normal position, i.e. not at the end of the extender" Gardner Read: "If punctuation marks come after a word, the extender begins immediately after the [punctuation]".
```
Ted Ross also has the illustration with the extender after the full stop.
