"Dangling" ties.

Hwaen Ch'uqi
Greetings,

Is there a way to force LilyPond to engrave ties at the end of a
snippet of music? I was hoping that \set tieWaitForNote = ##t would
work, but it too had no results. Here is the snippet in question:

\score {
  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff {
      \relative c' {
        \key es \major \time 6/8 \clef bass
        r4. \grace { a16[ bes c] } <des f,>4.~ %123
      }
    }
    \new Staff {
      \relative c' {
        \key es \major \time 6/8 \clef bass
        f,,8 r r \grace { s16 s s } <des f des'>4.~ %123
      }
    }
  >>
}

Thank you so much.

No need to "force" ;-)

Ties have two ends.  You need a half-tie instead.  Those are available
under the name \laissezVibrer for the ongoing half-tie (what you want
here) and \repeatTie for the arriving half-tie.

For sure your next question is how to make them longer. There are a few
ways, but check LSR 715.

Wow, thank you all for your prompt responses! It was in fact the
lengthening of the ties that I was searching for.
