Horizontal constraint on dragged lyrics, please
We can drag lyrics in museScore but I see no discussion of dragging lyrics in the Handbook. So I'm scratching my head and wondering if I've overlooked something therein.
I'm loving using MuseScore ... but sometimes its UI seems lacking or backwards. For example ...
A line of lyrics is like a line of text, where the baseline of a characters are strictly aligned. Therefore a change in horizontal placement is the adjustment I most commonly make, to better center a lyricule beneath a note, or to better situate for two or more long, adjacent "lyricules." (The rare exception is perhaps to move a lyricule vertically to avoid collision with a notation symbol above—but usually I'd rather move the entire line, especially if the adjustment is slight.)
That said,when I drag a lyric horizontally I want its vertical placement constrained. However MuseScore's default behavior is "Drag me any where, Baby" — meaning there the are no constraints, so the addition minor vertical misalignments is practically enforced.
And yes, I know I can select a lyricule and arrow left or right. But like many in certain respects I'm more of a mouse person. And I believe this feature is undocumented on the Handbook's entry on lyrics.
Naturally in looking for constraint control I tried various modifier keys. To my astonishment Shift constrains lyricule dragging vertically! Vertically!! And there seems to be no modifier for horizontal constant.
Does anyone else expect or want default horizontal constraints on dragging lyricules? Or prefer that the Shift modifier key constrains horizontally? If so, please chime in and I'll create a Issue Tracker request.
Chord symbols and Chord diagrams share the same constant behavior.
