Is there any way to have the Lyrics start on 3rd(or any measure in the song)
If I have a song with an intorduction, and I want to add Lyrics, how do I get them to
start anywhere into the song other than measure 1?

Thanks for any help you can offer

Couple of ways:

1) Set the note properties for all the notes in the intro to "Lyric syllable never" - Highlight the notes, <Alt-Enter>, Notes (tab) and "Never" from the "Lyric syllable" list box.

2) use enough underscore "_" characters (separated by spaces) in the lyrics window to "use up" all the notes in the intro...

Method 1 is probably the better one but it's your choice.
