Issue with Word extensions

Postby Elwin_Raffins » Sat Mar 17, 2018 4:37 am

I have inputted lyrics up to 4 verses, but there is only one chorus. The problem is, the final word extensions for verse 2-4 are extended all the way to the end, even under the chorus staff. Even after editing word extensions and trying the dialogue box out, it still extended all the way to the end. What must I do?

I tried adjusting word extensions, but the extension spans more than one staff.

Since I can only see a small picture, and not a file, I can't give the best advice. I use the measure tool to choose the measure where those start and choose the option to break smart word extensions.

I use a hidden grace eighth rest at the end of the last measure of the verses. This stops the extension.
