Thanks!   The step of explicitly assigning voices to staffs fixed the problem of the stem directions, as well as the typesetting warning.

(I'm working with Denemo version 2.2.0)

Your letters have been very helpful.

Best regards,

yes - I expect this is because of the stem directions clashing

Yes, this is what the Voice settings do (it is not only the stem
direction but also whether ties are above or below and other stuff, all
taken care of once you tell LilyPond which voice is which).
Look at

Command: Choose Initial Voice
Choose which voice this staff will initially be set to. To change voice
during music see the Directives->Voices menu.
Location: Object Menu ▶ Staffs/Voices ▶ Voices
Internal Name: InitialVoice

or, if you need to switch which voice you are typesetting mid-music:

Command: Voice Preset 1 (Stems Up)
Preset for first voice. Stems up
Location: Object Menu ▶ Directives ▶ Typesetter ▶ Voices
Internal Name: VoicePreset1

and friends in the directives->typesetter->voices menu. There is a
palette "Polyphony" which brings together these commands and others.
(View->Palettes->Select a Palette to Show=>Polyphony).
