Little problem with the division of syllables

Hi, I would like to point out a small problem in exporting the lyrics.

By inserting two syllables under the same note, they appear together when exporting the text.
Obviously the solution is to correct the text.
This is just one example.

This prompts a question. Do you think it would be more useful if this were exported as:

  • underscore, which is how Dorico takes the input, or
  • space, as the text would be printed in a libretto?

I’d presume a space – given that we’re not exporting hyphens either.

Of course, this particular text can be readily obtained without needing to export from Dorico! :rofl:

Yes, ask your local priest :wink:

I gave a simple example to point out the problem.
I noticed this when I transcribed an entire work and, often, there were two syllables under the same note.
It is clear that the elision should be converted into space, just as the hyphen between one syllable and another is eliminated to join the syllables of that word.
And, while we’re at it, it would be interesting to be able to use a language dictionary (in the case of the example I cited, Latin), for the subsequent correction of the sung text, in a Dorico text correction window.
