Songtext not positioned correctly

What’s wrong?

You’re not using vocal staves so the barlines join up. The usual fix for this is to use vocal staves (and if you need grand staff, use the special Choir Reduction instrument, designed specifically for this purpose).

Pianoleo’s advice is the “right way” to do it, but if you want to fix up your existing score, you can use the Bracketing tools in Engrave mode to split up the barlines.
