Just to make sure we are troubleshooting the correct thing (i.e. this
isn't something local to your system).

I used this modified version of your example - in case there was a
problem in the 'context' of the markup as to where the ligatures might
not be showing up.


\version "2.19.56"

\layout {
  ragged-right = ##t

\header { title = "Ach wie fiuchtig" }

{ c'4^\markup \abs-fontsize #23 { "Ach wie flüchtig" } d' e2 }

\markup \abs-fontsize #30 { "Ach wie ffüchtig" }


See attached png for output.

mistakes, I was just illustrating the basic 3 ligatures fl, fi and ff
and they all work for me on the most current build as you can see on my

We did have a problem with ligatures not working in Windows - and we
had an issue for that back in 2015


but otherwise unless I am misunderstanding, this seems to work for me on
