How do I delete a stray word which is in totally the wrong place? If I delete it, it will delete it from the lyrics window and then delete all the other instances of the word.  I just want to delete this single word.

Can you help please?

I have Finale 25. (v and I use a Mac  - Catalina 10.15.7

Welcome to the forum!


By your word “word” you probably mean “syllable” (possibly a one-syllable word).


I am not sure I fully understand the issue, but try this:

Lyrics menu > Adjust Syllables

Handles will appear on all syllables.

Drag-select the handle on the pesky “syllable” - or “word” - and hit the Backspace key.
