Can I assign a different font for different verses?

Postby mrfunk » Fri Feb 08, 2019 3:47 pm

I'm trying to learn a song in a language that I have not studied before. I'd like to place the original lyrics underneath the notes as usual, but add them in IPA (international phonetic alphabet) above that. I understand that I could do it by applying the IPA version as if it were 1st verse lyrics, and the original version as if it were 2nd verse lyrics. I'd like to be able to print this out with a black and white printer, so I was thinking of differentiating the two by assigning a different font to them (not to mention the fact that many fonts don't even have all the characters that IPA uses). Is this possible?

Lyrics Tool.
Lyrics menu > Lyrics Window…

In the Lyrics Window you can edit each Verse, and you can change the font (the Text menu is available when you are in the Lyrics Tool).
