2 words 1 syllable

Post by jose oscar » Sun Dec 05, 2021 2:36 pm

In measure 13, first lyrics I want to write "no a" into the same syllable.
I incorporated "a" a posteriori.

I appreciate your help


I did it on Windows lyrics, but when I try to do it with ALT+0160 the syllable "a" goes to the next syllable

Choose "Insert a hard space" from the Text menu.\

That would be done with an undertie. It's in the Finale Lyrics font in F26, but I'm not sure about 25. Or, as motet suggested, a hard space.

motet,
I did as you say, but I can only see a space in the lyrics window, but it's not reflected on the score

miker,
could you further explain, please?
Once I am in LYRICS FONT what should I do to get the undertie?

If you enter a Hard Space, it won't look any different, but it won't cause the cursor to jump to the next note.

For the undertie, as you're entering the lyric, go to the Text menu (yes, the Text menu, not the Lyrics menu!) and go to Insert Symbol... Scroll down until you find the character. You could also use a utility like PopChar, which I find indispensable!
