One measure takes up entire line!

• May 5, 2015 - 19:04

I am composing a Sanctus. After filling in the notes, I started adding lyrics, and all of a sudden, measure 5 moves down to the next line and takes up the entire line! How do I fix this and/or prevent it from happening?


Having a measure move to the next line as you edit is perfectly normal, it's like word wrap in a word processor. If it's on a line by itself and you expect more measures would be able to fit, then probably you have a line break at the end of that measure preventing MuseScore from adding more measures - again just like how a line break
in the middle of a sentence
prevents a word processor from adding more words to the line.
