Adjustment of lyrics to the score
Until now adjustment of lyrics to the score works just fine. And it still does if I type it myself.
However I downloaded a nwc piece and I wanted to correct in some places where for instance I wanted a syllable to go with  a number of notes instead of one.
If I use in that case the trick with ";" normally the next syllable shifts to the note after the slur. But in this piece it shifts too far!
In the lyrics I find no unknown characters. I removed a portion of the lyrics and typed them again: problem stays!
It is a piece (Missa tempore quadrigesimae; the credo-2) with 6 whole notes/ measure.

Can somebody help me with this?

Highlight a note (or consective notes) where you don't want lyrics.  Press Cntl/E.  Under Notes, look for "Lyric Syllable" on the right side near the center.  Choose "Never" and press OK.

Thanks Warren.  I used to achieve the same effect using the right amount of underscores and spaces in the Lyrics.  But this is by far easier and neater.

That is the only method to use if some verses need a specific lyric syllable and some don't.  When you are sure you NEVER want a syllable on specific notes, you can just change the notes.
