I am newbie on this forum, so hello everybody! :-)

I use Finale 2014d on Windows 10. I found, that after using command "delete lyrics" in FS Finale stops responding. This command seems not to work. I need to clear lyrics in many files and I found another way to do this:

select all
menu item "Edit/clear selected items"
press "none"
enter key
check "lyrics"
press ok

I have another question related to lyrics:
Is there a way to remove all the lyrics from Lyrics Window using only Finale script?
When I use command "Edit/clear selected items" and chose "lyrics" they disappear from score, but not from Lyrics Window.

I have not been able to select the lyrics from within FS, and therefore could not delete them using FS. Because FS has no iterative command, it would be necessary to make a script for each different lyric type used, but that would be trivial to do, just bulky.

The script below opens the Lyrics Window and selects the type of lyric (Verse, etc.) and which one (1, 2, 3, etc.)
[I have successfully run the script a number of times, but at the moment FS freezes when I try to run it; don’t know why.]

//Test script to remove lyrics from the lyrics window.

//Select the Lyrics Window
menu item "Lyrics Window"

//Select Verse, Chorus, or Section
dropdown "Verse" near "Lyrics:"

//Select which Verse Chorus or Section
type "1" near "Lyrics:"

The main problem is that I have been unable to find a way to access the editing window from within FS. I’ve tried a number of ways. For example, if I open the Lyrics Window and then select all the text by pressing ctrl+a, all the text for that level is selected. The same command [press ctrl “a”] added at the end of the script does not work on the lyrics within the Lyrics Window. I’ve also tried to just type in lyrics without success [type “This is strange”].

As an aside, the same problem occurs with the Edit Text window (menu item “Text/Edit Text”).

So the question comes down to whether there is a way to manipulate the lyrics inside the Lyrics Window using FS. At this point, I have not found it. Sorry.

Graeme Gilmore,

Thank You for your help. I also tried many times to go "inside" the Lyric Window with the FS. It looks like there is really no way do do this at this time. Maybe future releases could do that?

Hello,

If I am understanding the issue, I believe the script below will work for you.

lyrics tool
menu item "Specify Current Lyric*"
select radio "Verse"
type "1" near "Number:"
button ok

menu item "Lyrics Window..."

press ctrl "A"
del key

dropdown "Verse" near "Lyric:"
type "2" near "Lyric:"
tab 10
press ctrl "A"
del key

... etc

AGA,

It works great! Thank You so much! :) What a pity I've just done all the work without this script.
