I get the attached screenshot.

But I would expect (and want...) the text snippet "ste"placed on the
three first quarter notes of the bar,  and the following "e" on the
lat quarter.

The "lei -- son" then should be placed at the next bar.

What do I do wrong here?
You should read § 2.1.1 of NR, particularly at "Aligning lyrics to a
melody", "Using associatedVoice", "Multiple notes to one syllable" and
"Divisi lyrics". For small areas of non-matching rhythms, they work
well, but I find the method following, in "Polyphony with shared
lyrics", scales better than the others.

An example, hacked from a hymn, is attached. I copy one of the parts
(usually soprano) as the basis of the "align" variable, and then
subdivide (using ties) any note where another part moves. This looks
after the alignment of syllables, and extension generation (manually
set here). What I don't do is to copy/paste the moving parts
themselves, like the first NR example does: time-wasting and error-prone
IMO. The three-voice example is more how I do it, but uses slurs
rather than my ties.


I had to think a while what you mean by NR, but I think it's Note Reference?

There I could not find the "Polyphony with shared lyrics" you mention (using the 2.22.1 version of the documentation).

I use Frescobaldi for coding, and then your example does not fit there, I think. In any case, the solution of Guy presented above works fine for me, so for now I'm fine.
