Bug: lyric copy/paste

I’ve noticed that when copying/pasting lyrics, even to rhythmically identical passages, they will often be wildly out of order, and/or will have several missing syllables. Is this a known issue? Is this an inherent flaw in the logic of the lyrics engine?

No, this is not a general problem, as far as I’m aware. Can you attach an example that reproduces the problem?

I’ll see if I can catch it in action ASAP.

I’ve seen lyrics out of order when copying music to a new Flow.

(However, I assumed that MusicXML from Finale might have been a factor.)

Well, that’s a very interesting observation too, but without an actual project attached here or sent to me with some steps that would help me to reproduce the problem, all I can do is tell you that it’s an interesting observation.

Ha! Sent you a file by email.

OK, I figured out just now that my bug is caused by insert mode!

Turns out it’s not just insert mode. I experienced a copy/paste bug when copying from one flow to another just today.

Same here, they get jumbled no matter what I do. They copy and paste fine from staff to staff, but to another project, the syllables get reordered

Update: I think it’s solved!

Select the music you need
Go to: Edit>Reset Position
Paste into the other flow/file

Tell me if it works!
