Edit Lyrics with the Properties Palette



The Properties Palette is a useful tool for changing the properties of any symbol, including lyrics.


Be sure the application is in Select Mode, then select the lyrics you want to edit.


Note: If you are finding that you need to move all of the lyrics lower to clear some notes, consider adjusting the Symbol Spacing Lyrics Below setting for the system instead of adjusting their position.
