When I’m writing through-composed lead sheets, I usually write all lyrics using “line 1,” since I don’t want to run the risk of some of them being vertically displaced if the end of one verse and the beginning of the next are on the same system.
In the past, to display the verse number at the start of each verse, I’ve simply added “1.” or “2.” etc, using a non-breaking space. But of course this messes up the alignment of the first syllable.
I really love the ability to display the verse number to the left of the first lyric. In the example below, I had to change the lyrics to line 3, and carefully keep track of casting off. Would it be possible to include an override toggle for the verse number display, so I could show whatever verse number I wish in front of the first lyric?
