MuseScore 4.02, Windows 10:
Why isn't there a way to align all the lyrics on a line vertically? Very often, even when entering lyrics, when you get part of the line entered, the words at the beginning of the line suddenly jump up onto the staff, or are generally shifted vertically. Then the only way to re-align them is to select each word (or syllable) one at a time and try to get it perfectly aligned with the rest of the line. This is especially a problem when making corrections. Why not be able to turn off all the automatic formatting and let things stay where they are put? As it is, a measure may get pushed to the next (or previous) system, then my mouse is left pointing to the wrong measure & I have to go looking for my re-located measure. It's got so I have to number every measure & keep track of which measure# I am editing in order to find it again.
Also I can't get the Underscore to add a line to a word which is held over several notes (or beats). Shift- "_" just jumps to the next note.
And the lyrics don't seem to be connected to a note, rather to the top line of the staff. I have tried to follow the manual when dealing with these problems. Any hints would be appreciated.
