Adding Lyrics to Meterless Measures
I put the psalms my church group sings into MuseScore so we can add harmony. The verses in each psalm are basically meterless, much like a Gregorian chant. I make each line one measure, change the measure properties to the number of beats the notes are, and make them all stemless. I then add the lyrics below each note, with each note having several words, which I do by using a CTRL+space between the words. The problem I have is when I then go to line up the first word of the line with the first note. I get 5 rows of verse lined up, and then the 6th row moves everything. I've attached a finished piece. Am I doing something wrong? I'm also using MuseScore Version 2.3.2 because I did not like the changes in version 3.0 and above. Thank you.
