I’ve been using the trial version of Dorico for a couple weeks now and this is the first lyric spacing problem I’ve encountered. See attachment. I’m hoping there is an easy fix for this. I’ve already tried deleting and re-entering the lyrics here, but I keep getting the same compressed result. I have a couple other instances of the same type of issue in this piece which was imported into Dorico as a midi file. Otherwise, lyric entry has been a flawless process.
In Sibelius, whenever I’ve encountered compressed spacing like this, I could select the bar and re-apply ‘note spacing’ to correct the issue. How do I address this in Dorico? Re-entering these lyrics one word at a time and advancing with the space bar does not correct the problem here. I’ve applied no special note spacing to this file. Is there a logical cause for this kind of behavior? What is the preferred way to correct this kind of behavior in Dorico?
Thanks in advance.
