I’m working with lyrics for the first time in Dorico, and I have what might be a bit of an unusual case:
I’m making a packet of arrangements of holiday tunes for concert band and I’d like to include the lyrics at the bottom of the page for each song. Is there a way to have Dorico display lyrics in a Text Frame rather than under the staff? I know I could paste them into a text frame individually, but this is going to have about 20 different songs and about 20 different part layouts, so I’m hoping there’s a way to automate the process a bit. Ideally, I’d be able to have the text frame automatically “attached” to the bottom of the music frame for each flow, similar to how flow headings appear above each flow. That way if one part goes on to a second page but others don’t, I don’t have to worry about the text showing up in the wrong place.
I’m picturing songs where they put the first verse under the staff and list the additional verses in text blocks at the bottom of the page and wondering if there’s a way to do that in Dorico.
Hopefully that makes sense.
