Good day all!
In my example, I need the lyric extender lines to appear on the syllables at the end of bar 13. However since they are “attached” to the soprano line (dotted quarter) they won’t appear, but they are needed in the alto and tenor lines of all the verses. I selected those syllables in Engrave Mode and increased the “Line End X” value. Even though the value has increased, the extender lines will not appear. Can this be fixed please?
I tried a work-around. First I selected “Verse Numbers Appear on First System Only.” Then, in bar 13, I created the lyrics after selecting the alto note. That worked, the extender lines appeared correctly, however the verse number appeared on it’s own, and messes up the bar.
Then I tried another work-around. I changed the soprano G, bar 13, dotted quarter, to a quarter tied to a 8th using “force duration”. Then I was able to extend the lines. Then I changed the G back to a dotted quarter. That worked, but I should not have to go through all those hoops.
Can the development team please add this functionality to lyric extender lines?
