Thanks for your answer.
Interesting that you did consider this “stopper” but then rejected the idea.
Of course Dorico gives good results when you edit the “Lyric text alignment” in the property panel.
But as this situation is quite common it would be great if Dorico could automatically take care of this.
So I would plead for this feature.
I also found a case where editing the “Lyric text alignment” can lead to an unwanted result.
This picture shows the original situation where a syllable overlaps the music frame:
The next pixture shows the result when I set the “Lyric text assignment” to center:
But in this case, instead of only centering the syllable Dorico also moves the whole bar to the next staff,
and the syllable stays centered though now it is not wished any more.
Trying to deactivate the alignment setting or setting the alignment to “left” moves the bar to the previous staff and all can start from the beginning again!
I am sure that further tweakings would lead to a better result, but I believe that it then begins to be too much work for such a situation.
BTW chord symbols also need this function.
