Lyric line extentions?

In 4-part choral writing, I’m often copying lyrics from one part to the next. Often times there are melismas in one part, but not in another, or vice-versa. Is there a way to get lyric line extentions for a word that didn’t have one in the staff of origin?

Many thanks!

Not automatically, no.

You’ll have to double-click the lyric that needs extension (this will open the lyric popover), then press space bar as many times as needed for the extension line, and repeat for each melisma…

Great ! Thanks !!

If you select the voice that needs melisma spacebar should work then.
