I’m working on some music that has multiple verses, and sometimes it’s desirable to have certain lyrics positioned between notes and rests (for example, a second verse with extra syllables). I can enter such a lyric by moving the Note Input caret to the desired position and pressing Shift+L, or via copy/paste, but it will only be spaced correctly if a note or rest exists in that rhythmic position (on any staff). If there isn’t, those lyrics do not get considered in horizontal spacing, and they end up overlapping adjacent lyrics.
I would like to avoid the visual complexity of a second voice just to show a slightly different rhythm. I suppose I could create hidden, stemless, muted notes at those rhythmic positions, though. Anyone have any better ideas?
