When I am adding lyrics to a song, I sometimes put a two-syllable word in without a dash between the syllables by mistake. To fix it I have to delete all the words I typed after the mistake, then type the right word instead, and retype all the words after the mistake. I think it would be a lot better if you could simply edit the two-syllable word and put a hyphen between the syllables, then have musescore automatically shift all the words after it to the next note.

I turned this into a suggestion, because it has merits.

You can select the section of music with the lyrics you want to move, right click one of the lyrics and choose Select All similar elements in range selection. You can then cut and paste the lyrics. You can then fix the lyric with the problem by double clicking it and retyrping it like "lyr-ic" to enter the dash between syllables.
