Re-spacing of notes

I have a bad problem in a lead sheet: two words overlap, and there seems to be no way to adjust the spacing, as is done in Sibelius. Here’s a screenshot.

Is your screen shot in Galley View? If it is, this is a known issue caused by the fact that horizontal spacing (of everything, not just lyrics) in galley view is only approximate, and the problem will go away in Page View.

Stuart, there are certainly tools in Dorico for adjusting note spacing. Take a look at the Operation Manual. But you should certainly not need to make manual adjustments for this kind of situation. If Rob’s diagnosis is wrong, please zip up and attach your project so we can take a look.
