The lyrics dash (to separate sylables) doesn't use the dash of the font used for lyrics, but draws a (short) line instead.
This can be seen if one mixes Ctrl+'-' and the 'normal '-': they look different.

Looks pretty ugly when you want more than one dash between sylables (as common on on long melismas, spanning multiple notes, e.g. "Glo - - - - - ria"), as the Ctrl+'-' trick's apparearence doesn't mix and match that of the regular dash. What does "Behind Bars" say about this (Sorry, ~75€ to buy this is beyond my budget)?

Finale, capella, Primus, Sibelius, Lilypond allow for multiple dashes in long melismatic parts.
Not sure whether these are even mandatory?

Would this multiple dash problem be another issue?

Hello Jojo,
while I was loitering in the French forum I found out how to treat the dash (tiret):
Ctrl + Alt - or Ctrl + Shift _
Sorry if this is not relevant perhaps is already known
