I’ve noticed that italicized lyrics aren’t preserved in condensed scores:
This isn’t a bug: the ‘Italic’ property is one of those that can be set differently when uncondensed and condensed. You can select the lyrics in Engrave mode on the condensed staves and set the ‘Italic’ property again.
I’m glad that we can change them in the Engrave panel; thanks for that note. Would it make more sense, when condensing, to apply the italicization to the condensed staff if all individual staves were italicized, and let users undo it if they wanted to? I’d bet that will be the 80% desired behavior.
