For rhythmic alignment without noteheads, beams, accidentals, etc. consuming
space, the relatively new
has been invented.
This, however, still doesn't quite solve your problem yet as other elements
still take up horizontal space.
Thanks, I wasn’t aware of NullVoice. This is better than what I had before, but yes, it solves not every case.
I've come to a solution that works with your example, but, I'll have to
admit that if it had been "i -- met" instead of "a -- met", a tiny gap after
the slim letter "i" still couldn't have been avoided that way.
In addition, longer melismata and note lengths lead to hyphens/gaps.
There is a very minor drawback, in that the snippet adds a barely noticeable space after a multisyllabic word. I opened a different thread about this a few days ago, maybe a fix will be found.
