Is there a way to select an entire section of music and one-click delete all its lyrics?
I’m only finding awkward ways to do this:
• I can click on an individual syllable and delete it, but then I’ve got hundreds
• In Write mode, in Galley view, I can sort of oddly lasso around lyrics and if I get lucky I lasso the right thing (not including its notes) and can delete it, but it only works for one screenful at a time and one stave at a time. I need to delete dozens of measures of lyrics and four staves.
• I wish I could click on the first syllable, shift-click the last syllable, then hit delete, but this doesn’t work either. This selects the notes too, and if I hit delete, I lose my notes, which is not what I want.
Any reason there isn’t a simple Edit > Lyrics > Remove command?
Side note: in my second example (lasso/rectangle-select a passage of music) it’d be super dooper helpful if elements highlighted DURING the mouse-down so I could see what I was selecting. Dorico doesn’t do this, so I have to release my mouse to then discover I was one pixel away from enclosing the right elements in my selection rectangle.
I’m in 3.5 BTW.
