Elision vs. Hard Space

I have a file imported into Dorico via XML, and it has hared spaces in some of the lyrics. Dorico interpreted these as words with elisions. Is there a way to substitute a hard space for each elision?

Unfortunately there’s no way to do a find-and-replace operation on text in Dorico at the moment. I’m not sure what kind of solution for this would be possible other than editing each lyric by hand, I’m afraid.

Maybe one could do a find/replace on the XML file? If you provide a sample file that shows the problem, I’m pretty sure it should be easy to build a regex that can be applied with a simple editor.

There were not that many elisions, so I solved the problem for my own purposes. Thank you, all.
