Dorico 4.3: Lyric Collisions in Galley View

Lyrics in Galley View seem to be colliding with notes below the staff with some frequency upon updating to Dorico 4.3 It almost seems as if their collision avoidance is turned off.

Can send a file if need be. Thanks!

Galley view in general doesn’t do collision avoidance: it’s a “working view” primarily, with spacing calculations minimised to reduce computing requirements.

You can change the vertical spacing in galley view.

Hi Lillie,

Thanks for this. I guess this was just my imagination that anything was worse, as I’ve just opened a file in 4.2, 4.1, and 3.5 and you are correct. My apologies!
