slurs
I want to create a song which has a note in verse #1 contains 1 syllable and in verse #2 contains 2 syllables (two notes of a half duration).
The notes should be slurred "eventually", but I do not know how to do that.
Who can help me?

Regards,
Guido van Harten

This can be done by using the Slur.ms object, using the "dash" option to indicate that the slur does not occur for all verses. In the lyrics, put a "_" character for the second syllable in the verse that has only one syllable. Note that custom objects require NWC version 2.75.

Here is an example:
