Windows 10 Pro, Finale 26.3.1.520

I'm trying to do the following maneuver, which I think it's easier if I attach a photo rather than try to describe.  This is a four-part hymn with multiple verses, and the refrain "Alleluia" at the end of each phrase.  I figured out how to add a bracket with the expression tool, creating a misc. expression with the ShapeDesigner, but I don't know where to start to make the "Alleluia" combine into one line of lyric and then split back into multiple lines of lyrics at the beginning of the next measure.  Any help would be appreciated!

Assuming all of the other verses are in their own lyric “container,” just add another one: Verse 7, or whatever.

I would think one could use the Chorus rather than Verse option in the lyric edit window and set the baseline for that independently, but Mike's solution would work just as well.

 

(The more burdensome part might be cutting off the extension lines on the verses, which would probably have to be done manually.)

Adrian,

Yes, of course you could use Verse, Chorus, or Section. No difference, as long as you keep track of what you’re doing!

 

To easily handle the “runaway” word extensions, a hidden grace rest at the end of the measure will stop them. Just be sure that the rest is in the same layer as the line the lyrics are attached to.
