Hello again Andrew,

Yes, this is exactly what I do, even if I did not want to make my snippet too complicated by introducing also the piano staff. You could of course use four staves, but in real life often two staves are used with two voices in each. Often however life is not that simple, there are more than four voices: first and second soprano, first and second alto etc. And it is in these cases the shown situation arises. Sometimes e.g. second soprano is singing at the same pitch as first alto. In order to make reading the notes as simple as possible one wants to have their notes separated, and the initially described situation arises. So, why can't I produce a note image like this (produced in GIMP, since I do not know how to do it in LilyPond)?:

Hi Kaj,

Then why not use four voices for SATB, and two staves as per say a standard vocal template, such as the example hymn template in the Snippets section of the manual? All the dot clashes go away - which is I suppose the advantage of the established way of setting such music for SATB,
