How to copy lyrics, or lyrics plus melody

How to copy just lyrics, or lyrics plus melody, from one staff to another.

Option 1: Copy lyrics only

  1. Make sure that the melody in both staves has the same rhythm;
  2. Select the lyrics in the "donor" staff that you want to copy.
  3. Select a copy command option;
  4. Click on the note in the "recipient" staff where you want the lyrics to start. Use one of the paste options.

Option 2: Copy lyrics and melody together

  1. Select a range of notes in the "donor" staff;
  2. Select a copy command option (this copies both notes and accompanying lyrics);
  3. Paste to another staff;
  4. Adjust the pitches if required (you can reenter the notes without changing the original rhythm using Repitch mode).
