Direction and Lyric Text question  
« on: Aug 14th, 2012, 2:29am »

I have an imported file that has incorrectly imported some lines of lyric text as direction text (actually, all staves except one). I see that I can left-click on each syllable and convert it to lyric text, but this is a 33 page score, so that will take my entire life. Is there a way to batch edit this?
 
PS: This is the trial version. I'm seeing if this will work before investing. Looks like a good program. Thx!

Also, when I said "left-click" in my original post, I meant to say "right-click"

I've just tried the file with PDFtoMusic Pro version.  
The lyrics on the 2nd staff do appear as text bits. The 2nd staff is not set to "with lyrics"...

Yes, the text on the staff labelled "A" is all imported as "Direction" text. All lyrics on other staffs throughout the document appear to be correctly imported as "lyric" text. This wouldn't matter, except when I export to XML to go to Finale, all of the Direction text is then imported into Finale as Expressions instead of lyrics.
 
My question is whether there is a way with PDFtoMusic Pro to batch convert Direction text to Lyric text. Or, is there a way to change that staff setting that you mentioned ("with lyrics"), if that would work?

I should say that a script run in Harmony Assistant might be able to do the batch job, though it is still to be written, as far as I know.

If you own the Pro version set the Expert Mode>Lyrics section,
Ratio between the number of words... to 10.
 
For the moment no solution for the standard version : there is some notes with no lyrics related in this score.

I've just tried with the settings suggested by Didier and it does work (words as lyrics on all the matching staves)
Apparently the lyrics stop at bar #363 (I checked this on the pdf file)
