Why is "Lyrics from clipboard" greyed out in the menu?

I can’t paste lyrics in the Cubase score editor. The option is greyed out in the list and my shortcut does not work. I have no idea why. Can someone please tell me why this is happening?

You do have text copied to the clipboard, right? (sorry for the “Is it plugged-in?” question)

Yes. I restarted Cubase and now it works. Not sure what was going on. I moved the lyrics after pasting in the 1st phrase and changed color to the notes. Then I couldnt use the function thereafter

You have to select a note in the score for the option to be ungreyed in the menu.
Maybe that’s the reason.
