Lyrical Glitches?

Hello,

Has anyone else noticed some bugs with lyric entry in HookPad? I notice that lyrics tend to display correctly in the score export, but are oftentimes messed up in HookPad, requiring the addition of “”1””’s to the score to fix it up so it looks correct in HookPad.

For example, a note starting on the 4th beat in a 4 beat measure but ending in the first beat of another measure will register in the lyrics display as two distinct beats. Has anyone had this problem? It seems to largely crop up on larger sets of lyrics, and makes working with lyrics difficult…

Thank you,
Emerald

Hi @emeraldnext,

Thanks for this bug report. Would you be able to send a screenshot of what you’re experiencing, or let us know the name of one of your projects where you’re seeing this bug? We’re having some trouble reproducing it, and would love to fix it for you as soon as we can

Hello,

I’ve got a screenshot of the bug in action. It occurs when a note extends from the end of an eighth measure to the start of every ninth measure. You can see here that this is a single note that on sheet music would be tied across measures 64-65. The specific problem in this image is that two of the syllables are being displayed on the same note that is being highlighted - syllables gl and o.

The problem can be “fixed” by adding two empty measures to the top of the piece.

Thank you,
Emerald
