I was looking / asking the same some time ago.

A very helpful list denizen helped me by suggesting...

\markup { \dynamic "p - f" }

Just thought I'd pass on :-)

Here's how I would do it:

* Go to Google and type "lilypond 2.22 dynamics".  The 2.22 is the
version.  This usually brings up several possible links to the manual
and the first one is a good one.
* Clink the link about expressive marks:
* Click the New Dynamic Marks link.  There you go!
* Alternatively, you could start here:
Usually what you want is in the Learning Manual, the Notation
Reference, or Snippets.  The Internal Reference is for when you get
deeper into LilyPond.  You can use the Search field in the bottom left
corner, and this it turns out uses Google!  But it can get you some
clues about how to search.

I can't remember how to do dynamics pertaining to an implied repeat.

The music has "p -f" for dynamic marking.

The general problem: How do I search (what phrases should I use) to
find this information in the manual?
