Rests in Lyrics

Any tips on how to achieve the attached image?

Can you enter rests (maybe as a {@@} token) in the lyrics popover?

The following works here:

  1. Set the Font Styles > Lyric Translation font to Bravura Text.
  2. Copy the glyph from
  3. Paste into the Lyric Translation line using the popover, or paste into the regular line of lyrics and then tick the “Is translation” property in the bottom panel.

It’ll cobble up the vertical spacing somewhat, so you’ll need to dip into Engrave mode, select a lyric on that line and go Alt/Opt-Up (or Ctrl/Cmd-Alt/Opt-Up) to put things back in order.

Hey, Pianoleo, always a good tip at hand …

Thanks Jürg
