In his video ‘Improvements to Lyrics | New Features in Dorico Pro 3’, Anthony Hughes says ‘Dorico has always boasted powerful support for lyrics’.
Once the lyrics are in, Dorico’s now capable enough but in the absence of any hyphenation function, there’s no easy way of getting them onto the page in the first place. It’s incredibly frustrating that one can start off with lyrics in a reliable form and ready to paste but then have to type them in or use third-party tools for the hyphenation (I don’t know of anything really dependable anyway). It’s such a waste of time and it almost guarantees that there’ll be errors. I think this is now the weakest thing about Dorico.
Finale 2 could hyphenate the text in 1992; Sibelius has been able to do it for as long as I’ve had a licence. English, French, German, and Italian are most important for me.
