Bug in lyrics entry via clipboard (melisma)?

• Jun 3, 2023 - 19:33

If i enter the sentence

Der Muell-ei----mer stinkt un-be-schreib-lich._____

via clipboard into lyrics (CTRL+V several times) in the attached file, the melisma line at the end consists of two lines slightly offset.
Have I done something wrong?

The first underscore is being interpreted as part of the lyric, as if you had typed Ctrl+underscore. I assume that is a bug, but I haven't used this feature enough to understand how it is supposed to work (and it never worked in MU3 for me). From trial and error, it seems to work better if you put a space before the underscore.
