Lyrics can be entered all at the same time once you have entered your notes. Select the Lyric object in the objects palette and the Pencil tool from the toolbar. Click on the first note and enter the syllable for that note. Now press the TAB key to move the cursor to the next note. Continue typing and going from note to note using the TAB key (and SHIFT+TAB key to go backwards). If you want to enter a single hyphen between two syllables, enter CTRL+-(dash) instead of TAB. If you want to enter a double hyphen between two syllables, enter CTRL+SHIFT+-(dash). You do not have to click on each note individually to enter its lyric syllable.
You can enter four levels of lyrics. To select the lyric level you want, select the lyric number from the lyric list box at the right of the Score Editor control area.
To adjust the level of lyrics, select the Lyric Positioning dialog by clicking on the Lyrics button in the Display Page dialog, available under the Display menu.
