Improvements to lyric insertion and editing
I recently moved to Musescore from an older software; I mainly use it to compone and write choral parts.
About lyrics editing, I find that there are 3 main problems that deserve to be fixed.
1 - It is not possible to move (make them slide) syllables to the next (or to the previous) note.
When you add lyrics, if you do mistakes - in particular two-syllables on a note instead of one, or instead no-syllable on a note, caused by two spaces or two hyphens hitted by mistake - and you notice them at final, you probably will have to cancel all the lyrics put after the error, fix the error and then put the remaining text again.
This could be avoided if simply adding a hyphen (or a space) in the middle of a lyric, all the subsequent lyrics would slide forward by one note. Similarily it would be very useful if when you cancel a hyphen (or space) all the subsequent lyrics would slide backward by one note.
2 - There is not a text window to edit lyrics.
This is present in many other softwares and it is very useful; instead of editing lyrics note by note, all the lyrics of one part inside a text window: you can easier edit, correct, add, remove.... text; putting the correct hyphens/spaces between syllables and words, automatically the lyrics find their place under the correct notes. It would be very much quick to add and edit lyrics in this way.
3 - Two notes connected with a tie must be considered as one single note for what concerns lyrics.
All the benefits of solving the first two described issues will frustrate if in presence of ties Musescore considers two (or more notes) instead that only one. This because the presence or not of ties is unpredictable when you make lyrics slide or when you edit by a text window, and so they will cause errors.
This also frustrate some possible workarounds that I red in the forum; for example to move a portion of text by one note, select and copy it, then cancel it, select the correc starting note and paste repeatedly.
Some of what above, I've found on this old discussion: https://musescore.org/en/node/283991
