Has anyone else experienced words/lyrics disappearing from an existing file? When I open Finale 2014.5 files in Finale 25, my carefully positioned lyrics disappear. Using Win 8.1 on a desktop PC. See below for what I get compared with before. I opened a support case last night because I suspect it's something that needs to be looked at in the new version but I also rolled back to a System Restore point before installing 25 because I can't afford to have lyrics across multiple files obliterated by the new version. I'm sure Make Music will address this, but just wondered if anyone else had seen the issue. Thanks.

Disappearing and/or massively offset lyrics has been going on for many years, over many versions. Incredibly frustrating, and it's the reason I have to save my work every 30 seconds or so. Hoping against hope that it was addressed in this new v.25, but I guess it wasn't. **deep, deep sigh**. Please, please, please Finale, can we get this sussed out? Please??

Thanks, Michael. I have had some occasional instances of offset lyrics (hence I PDF my files as well as backing up just to ensure I can rebuild if catastrophe happens) but this is the first total disappearance I've experienced!

I have had the same issue, combined with a refusal of the new version to accept lyric entry even in newly created files.  Am wondering if the non-appearance of the "Finale lyrics" font which my new version stubbornly insists (changes attempted) on using for verse lyrics -- but which wasn't evidently loaded on installation? -- might have something to do with this iteration of the issue.  Rolling back seems a good idea.
