Adding block lyrics


How can one add block lyrics to a lead sheet in Dorico? Coming from Sibelius, it’s quite straightforward there. But I can’t figure it out in Dorico, and it seems from past discussions in the forum that it’s not easy to do.

Any assistance gratefully received!



Can you explain what you mean by “block lyrics”?
Is this what you were looking for?

It’s a text frame with lyrics input as text.

Thanks, Dorico pals! Yes, just another example of me using thinking trained in Sibelius, which calls this “block lyrics.” And also not being used to the Write versus Engrave modes, as everything is in one window in Sibelius.

I see how to do it now, with those hints.
