The simplest way from inside Denemo would be to use a phrasing slur
instead of a slur. (Notes/Rests->Slurs->Begin/End Phrasing Slur
More sophisticated would be to use Directives->Insert LilyPond to put in
something to tell LilyPond whether to take into account slurs, ties or
beaming as melisma indicators, e.g. inserting
\set melismaBusyProperties = #'()
would turn off all melismata while I think the syntax for just excluding
slurs would be
\set melismaBusyProperties = #'('slurMelismaBusy)

Hmm, it seems that on pedal up the cursor moves two steps to the right -
I've filed a bug about that. I don't know why that would be - when
appending chords that is harmless.
When not appending chords I see that it edits the chord at the cursor, I
don't see any method for inserting a chord using the pedal there, other
than first inserting a rhythm (ie duration). Perhaps that's ok?
Feedback from users is needed here - I mostly use the Alt key to enter
chords, and I've not much experience of editing chords using the MIDI
keyboard. (I don't do much composing/arranging, just transcribing).
There could well be obvious improvements for use by composers ...
