Inserting text such as lyrics.

• Oct 22, 2022 - 19:05

Hi all,
Sorry, but yet another question.
I am trying to insert text below the staff (such as instructions). I have looked through the Online Handbook, but I cannot seem to get anywhere with it.
Any tips/ideas, please?


Select a note or measure where the text will go. Select Staff Text from the Text palette. Type your text. Drag it to below the staff. This is one way to do it.

If they are lyrics, use the actual lyrics function - Ctrl+L.

Most instructions should be placed above the staff; below the staff is supposed to be reserved for dynamics and other expression. Ctrl+T for instructions above the staff, Ctrl+E for expression below. But either can be flipped to the wrong position for occasional special purposes by pressing "X".
