That is true. Your message would be received more favourably if you said something like
```
```
‘It would be great if LilyPond offered a possibility to auto-hyphenate text in markup. There doesn’t seem to be an issue in the tracker yet.’
```
```
It’s a known issue that this is not possible to do in LilyPond, which is why (almost?) everybody to typeset such large projects with LilyPond has used LilyPond only for the music itself and embedded the output in *TeX or other word-processing/publishing software. Since we indeed don’t seem to have this feature request listed, I created a tracker: <https://sourceforge.net/p/testlilyissues/issues/5017/>

Best, Simon
