I set a text to music but I started to low when writing the song text into MuseScore (Because there had been lyrics already which I deleted beforehand as I think). Now there are three "empty lines" and only then the first verse starts.

Is there a way to move all lyrics three lines up? See picture..

Unfortunately, MuseScore's lyrics functions are poorly implemented, which makes them very hard to edit or move en masse. As far as I know, there is no way to move these all simultaneously. Your options are to retype them all or move each lyric segment.

  • Thanks for your feedback. This is a bit cumbersome, but it'll be okay. I wanted to ask before doing it, so that I won't come to know with hindsight there would have been an easier way. – user12261 Jul 4 '14 at 10:20

Ctrl-Right Click on the individual words you want to move and then with the Ctrl Key down drag the lyrics up. I guess the command key would work for Mac users.

  • user30337, is this now supported? If so what version of Musescore supports this? – PatS Apr 30 at 13:02
