Lyric offset: bug?

With 1.70 whether I give a positive or a negative value to the lyric offset command, it puts the lyrics closer to the staff (with bottom). I don't remember this happening in the earlier version.

Could I be doing something wrong, or might this be a bug?


It IS a Great program!

In the past, the program always automatically fit the lyrics under or above the staff by increasing the staff size as needed. It no longer does this if you use a negative offset. When using negative offsets, you have to size the staff manually from Staff | Properties.

Bug: The lyric editor automatically makes room for lyrics in the staff, when possible. It shouls not do this if the lyrics use a negative offset, as the user is intentionally trying to shift the lyrics out of the primary staff area.
