I'm re-working a 4-part song where each part has lyrics in different places. I enter the lyrics for the First Tenor part (first voice of the Tenor-(top)- stave) and then use inspector to move the lyrics so that hey appear above the notes, thus leaving room for the second tenor lyrics below the second tenor notes. Similarly for the two bass parts.
Works fine EXCEPT where a melisma continues from one line of music to another. What happens then is the actual lyrics are moved above the notes as expected BUT the portion of the melisma on the second stave does NOT move. I can't find a way of selecting the melisma to move it via Inspector.
I've attached an example showing the problem. The First Tenor melisma begins after the word "works" on the minim in bar 3 and continues to the dotted minim in bar 5, but bars 4 & 5 are in the second stave. You can see that the melisma has not moved above the notes in bars 4&5 as the lyrics have, and so interfere with the lyrics for the second tenor voice.
The only solution I can think of is to split bar 3 after the first beat so that the remainder of bar 3 plus bars 4&5 fit on the same stave (I hope) but really I shouldn't need to do that (should I).
What am I missing that will get, a melisma to locate correctly?
