I'm entering some French text (using the Lyric tool) beneath a single line of music. Because of the way that French sometimes elides syllables into one another, I have to place a syllable, a space, and the next syllable beneath a single note. Since Finale processes all spaces (whether typed into the score or into the Lyrics window) as directions to move on to the next note, I can't do this! Is there a workaround that anyone has found?
I'm using Finale version 188.8.131.526, under Mac OS 10.12.4 (Sierra).
