more space between some lines
Sometimes I have a song with directions ("All", "men", "women", "Refrain", etc.).
These directions should have the same font size as the lyrics (I want do display the song using a projector onto a wall).
But how do I create more space between the fourth and the fifth line? (Please tell me which function in NWC I have to use).

Regards,
Guido

Try this at the end of measure 9:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.75,Single)

I tried to understand HOW it is working:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
|Boundary|Style:NewSize|Upper:16
|Text|Text:"Refrein"|Font:StaffItalic|Pos:8

Does the number after "Upper" to be twice the number after "Pos" (8 * 2 = 16)?

No. Larger numbers will result in more space. Smaller numbers will result in less space. NWC will let you know if it doesn't like your number :)
