I think what OP was referring to is that two ties are placed on top of each other (it looks a bit thicker). Perhaps something like the following would be preferable.


\version "2.24.2"
\relative {
  \override Score.SpacingSpanner.shortest-duration-space = #3
  <e'_~ f_~ g^~ a_~ b^~ c^~> q

    Hi LilyPond developers,

    In dense chord clusters, ties sometimes fail to keep at least one staff
    space away from each other.

Do you mean without the override?  With the override, the ties look fine.
