I'm typesetting the attached music using four voices.  However, a shifted quarter note refuses to merge with the half-note from other voice.  I suspect it has to do with both having same stem direction, but how does one tell LP to merge anyway?  Force-shifting notecolumn didn't seem to do the trick.
\version "2.18.2"
\relative c' {

I don't know the answer off my head.
But what you're showing is exactly the example from the end of the Learning Manual.

It's hard to find through the table of contents, so you might make use of this direct link ;-)
Rereading this, I notice that the “Moderato” marking in the example would probably be more accurately and straightforwardly coded as
\tempo "Moderato"
than as
bes2.^\markup { \bold "Moderato" } .
Accordingly, the second sentence in the paragraph after the fourth music example should be changed from “The tutorial showed how to add bold text with the \markup command, so adding “Moderato” in bold is easy.” to “The tutorial showed how to add a tempo indication with the \tempo command, so adding “Moderato” is easy.

I’m not familiar with the patching process etc. so, if there are no objections to this, could someone apply the change, please?

Best regards, Simon
