    Lyrics in Overture?

    I was poking around last night, and couldn't seem to figure out how to input lyrics into Overture. It occurred to me later that maybe you can't in the SE/GPO version? If so, that would be a bummer, as I really like the program and was hoping to use it to score my musical. But without lyrics, it would be a mime musical, and that would just suck...

    I think the option is measure text. This may or may not be what you're looking for, I'm not sure, since I don't write lyrics. The only issue with this would be lining it up properly. I don't know?????

    Poopy doopy! Yeah, I could input all of the lyrics with text entry, but whoa, what a pain compared to normal lyric functions that automatically put the words with the notes.

    Then again, maybe a mime musical would be interesting...

    INSIDE THE BOX - Starring Marcel Marceau

    Not likely to be any "take home" chorus numbers, though...

    OK, Shaz, or anyone else! Trivia time: Marcel Marceau had ONE speaking role in a movie. Name the movie and tell us what he said.

    Correct answers get NO T-shirts, NO GOS, and NO Giga-anything.
