I have a situation where a long syllable is meant to be sung against two eighth notes. "As-sur-ance" is the word, and the final syllable needs to have a ____, but there isn't enough space for it to show.
I can get it to show up by highlighting the measure, going to properties, appearance, and increasing measure width, but this squashes the other measures creating new lyric issues.
I'm trying to keep the lines of the hymn each on their own stave, and moving a measure down to the next stave to make room in the current one would defeat that goal.
I only need to increase the space after the final eighth note to provide space for the extender line. How do I do that?
Thanks in advance for the help!
