Copy/Paste of lyrics

Copy/Paste of lyrics is as far as I can see not possible. I can select lyrics using the selection box, and press Ctrl-C, but selecting a note somewhere else and pressing Ctrl-V does not insert the lyrics as I would expect. This feature would greatly improve usability for choral-music as it would allow you to avoid typing the same lyrics 4+ times.

Tested with 0.9.5 and 0.9.6-r2148


Copy paste of "lasso selected" lyrics doesn't seem to work for me.

  1. Open Adeste.mscx demo file
  2. Lasso select all lyrics in the first full measure
  3. Edit > Copy
  4. Select first note in fourth full measure (treble staff)
  5. Edit > Paste
