Setting minimum width between non-hyphenated lyrics to size of space character
As sometimes I prepare songs for presentation, I try to do the same song with different strophes in the same space, normally on one page DIN A5 landscape.
A problem that arose: Between non-hyphenated lyrics sometimes, especially with shorter notes as eights, given a quarter metrum, the width is becoming too narrow in some places, so that the readability of the lyrics is suffering. In the above mentioned case that occurs nearly in every strophe at least once.
I know, that I could fix that by adding a fixed space before the beginning of a word, that follows on the short note, or by enlargening the minimum width between notes.
But the latter will have the negative side effect, that the whole song will be stretched.
It would be good, if musescore would have a minimum width between non-hyphenated lyrics in the size of a space character. A space normally is the width, that should be at least between two words to guarantee good readability.
It is possible, that this sometimes might also result in changes to existing scores where some things that formerly fit on one line would no longer fit without making manual adjustments, but I think such problems probably will not really occur often and will not outweigh the great improvement that it is not necessary to manually adjust these things.
You would not have to think about that anymore!
And most probable such a parameter would even help to pack pieces more narrow without loosing readability!
I think this is a thing that could (and should) be done by the software.
