Superscript in Lyrics

I am entering International Phonetic Alphabet as a pronunciation guide in a lyric line, and I have some parts that need to be superscript. I found a workaround when the superscript is at the beginning or end of a syllable, but not if it is in the middle. Can you do superscript in Lyrics (combined with regular typing)? Or help coming up with a work around.


Superscript is one of the settings in the Edit Lyric dialog. You’ll have to do it after typing.

If this is also for notating IPA, note that Unicode also provides for an extensive range of superscript symbols natively, that will look better than generated ones.


… though the number of decent fonts actually supporting all the hundreds of IPA symbols is very small.
