Hello !
I wrote the lyrics in a song, but only the verse change in it (as usual). But, at the end of the verse, the software create a red line for every verse which continue all along :

How to exit these lines, please ?
Thanks !

Those are word extensions. There are a few ways to deal with them.

Insert a hidden, grace rest after the D. You will have to delete and retype the last word or syllable in verses 2, 3, and 4, but the extension won't go beyond the rest.

Lyric menu>deselect Use Smart Hyphens and Word Extensions. This is no good, if you have needed word extensions in other spots.

Lyric men> Edit Word Extensions. This will show a handle at the end of each extension. Select the handle, DELETE.
