I am working with Windows 10, Finale V25. We are using a previously set template in English and are now replacing it with Dutch lyrics. Sometimes we have a conjunction in Dutch in which we have an apostrophe, letter, space, word (ex: 'k dat). This all needs to go under one note. The auto word setting would normally go to a second note for "dat". I have used the "adjust syllables" in the lyrics window to move the 'k and dat to one note. Then I have moved the other words but the note that is left over in the staff refused to allow a word placement. I finally used 'click assignment' and was able to get the word inserted only to have it change or disappear after closing and reopening the file. This issue occurs fairly often in the translation of English texts to Dutch and fitting it to established melodies.
I have little experience with Finale. We did not do the notesetting and are working with an established template.
Help is greatly appreciated.
