copy lyrics to clipboard make mistakes for voices above 2

• Mar 1, 2022 - 16:47

Hi all.
There are three files attached, one is the SATB score with only soprano lyrics, capture.jpg is the image of the result of "copy-lyrics-to-clipboard" command once properly formatted.
As you can see from the picture, there are quite few instances in voice 3 and 4 where the copied words, red underlined, do not match the corresponding lyric's words in the score.
The issue seems to appear when the score deals with notes grop like in picture in capture1.jpg. Look at measures: 3, 6, 10 and 14.
Should I log it as a bug?

The mistake at "dan gers" is due to a missing hyphen between them. The missing 2nd syllable of "many" and others seem a bug indeed (missing parts in bold):

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind but now I see.
'Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved; How precious did that Grace appear, the hour I first believed!
Through many dangers, toils, and snears, I have already come; This grace has brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.
The Earth shall soon dissolve like snow, The sun forbear to shine; But God, who called me here below, will be forever mine.

I suspect it has to do with the slurs the corresponding notes are connected with?
Hmm, no, apparently not, removing the slurs and the lyrics are still bad.
