Dashes in Lyrics that Span Many Bars
I have a problem with the way the dashes work between the syllables in lyrics. When the syllable spans many notes, it seems that musescore creates one dash and centers that between the syllables, regardless of how many notes or bars are between those syllables. The problem with that is that sometimes, especially in classical music, there can be many bars between those syllables and a single dash is not enough.
One of the things that I do is transcribe very old manuscripts. I'm currently working on a Scarlatti piece where a single 'a-men' can span 14 bars or more. Sometimes I get a single dash between the syllables, but often it gets confused and I don't even get that, I think partially because they can span multiple pages. When there is so much space between syllables there should be at least 1 or 2 dashes per measure.
Is there something that I'm missing? Or is there something that can be done about this?
