Add lyric lines to a score.
Change the style of even lines to a user defined style.
Save and close the score.
Reopen the score.
The style of even lyric lines is reset to the standard "Lyric even lines".
In the attached score verse two was set to "Blue text" and verse four to "Red text". But this seems not to be remembered.

I can't seem to reproduce, but maybe I'm misunderstanding the steps. Are you talking about changing the actual text style for even lines, or selecting all lyrics in verse 2 and apply a coloring? oth work for me - and changing the text style works whether I use the style dialog or set as style in the Inspector, and the changes all survive save/reload. So can someone list a step by step procedure to reproduce a problem using 3.1 RC?

Select all text in verse 2. With the Inspector choose from the style list my user defined "Red text". This colores the text in red. Save the score and exit. After reload the style changed back to "Lyric even lines"

OK, I understand. Instead of changing the lyrics to a user style, you probably are better off just changing the lyrics even style, which is what I thought you were trying to do. But yes, it should somehow be possible for us to realize the user has set a different style and not automatically apply the even style.
