Lyric alignment with numerals?
I am using lyric text to enter pedagogical information below a series of chords. The behavior of lyrics is just what I want: to center each bit of text below its associated chord, with spacing being expanded as needed to accommodate the "lyrics." I also use ctrl-space and ctrl-hyphen to include these elements within my annotations.
However, I see that, when I enter a series of digits without letters, either as the entire "lyric" word or as a subset of the "lyric" separated by ctrl-space entries, then the entire "lyric" is left-aligned, rather than centered, regardless of how the text style is set. When I add an 'x' or whatever after the offending string of digits, the text is then centered as expected.
Is this behavior by design? If so, what is the explanation? Can you think of an easy way to work around this? I can use staff text of course, but it's much cleaner to use lyrics since I'm entering these strings below every note in the score.
