thank you very much for your helpful reply.
I want to put lyrics between two piano staffs, so the barlines should be between staves.
Maybe that’s a bit unusual but I want my piano pupil to be able to play the music and read the lyrics at once (without having another system just for the melody, that doubles the right hand)
I know the properties-box. I’d like to have lyrics to align centered in general and I can change the settings for the syllables that come after a barline manually, of course. But I would appreciate if Dorico could do this automatically.
