Dashes distorted in lyrics

• Apr 28, 2009 - 12:40

When I input a dash between two syllables of lyrics, if it's at the end of a page it makes a really long line that cuts across to the next page and strikes through text there. I've checked the 'Text' and 'Lyrics' sections of the handbook but can't find an answer - have I missed the explanation or is it a bug? I'm getting round it by using Ctrl+- where I can.

Here's the score - it's just a copy I've made of a miniature score so it's more readable. I've changed most of the affected dashes to the other kind, but I left one in in bar 18 to show what the problem is. If it displays normally when you open it maybe it's something to do with my download or version or similar.
