LilyPond is not a WYSIWYG program.  It is perfectly feasible when asking
a question to include a small example.

My guess number 1 is that you are using \\ somewhere where it does not
belong.  However, even then \oneVoice when applied appropriately should
be able to counterbalance its effect.  So I have no clue what you are
actually doing here.

Well, "s" is not even a note, and "r" is not commonly used for alignment
I think.  Again, it would be important to include a small example of
what you are talking about so that people can give a hint for the best
way to address your and/or LilyPond's problem.

The version of Frescobaldi is not relevant for figuring out a LilyPond
problem when giving an example, so you can safely leave it off.  In the
rare cases where the operating system version is relevant, it may also
be a good idea to specify whether you are working with a 64bit or 32bit
version of the operating system.  The LilyPond version is by far the
most important information: be sure to include it in any question.

It can be sort-of implied by putting an appropriate \version command in
your minimal example <URL:http://www.lilypond.org/tiny-examples.html>.

All the best
