Lyric spacing parameters -

Hi Team–
I have a case where I’ve re-typset the Cantique de Noël / O Holy Night. I have 3 verses in english in the typical position, and the first line of the french above the staff. I discovered that there don’t seem to be independent options for adjusting the ‘minimum distance from staff’ for lyrics above the staff. I’d like to make the verse above a little further from the staff but there’s no way to control it currently (if I’m wrong I look forward to being pointed in the right direction!).


You’re right that at present the same values are used for lyrics below and above the staff. I’ll make a note of your request for the future.

Thanks, as always! (And a Joyeux Noël!)
