I have a women's barbershop document in 2012. I am trying to add lyrics in v. 4, attached to layer 2 in the bass clef. (I'm pretty well stuck with this setup to match the BHS standard.) When adding the lyrics, I am getting a freeze. This happens at different times: shifting the baseline, going to the next section, clicking out of the lyric tool. I've tried dividing the file, and it seems to work, but when I go back to the full file, I get the freeze again. I have tried restarting, as well as copying to a new document.

The file is attached. Any and all suggestions are welcome! (I have also sent it in to Tech Support.)

Thanks!

You have a woman's Barbershop document, my lord!**

I can enter lyrics in Verse 4, Layer 2, but I get a freeze (spinning beach ball of death) when I use the arrow keys to change verse.

I had a similar issue in a document I was doing once and fixed it by selecting the whole piece with the Measure Tool and unchecking Break Smart Word Extensions in the Measure Attributes dialog. I just tried the same in your document and it worked. I could change verses with the arrow keys and it didn't freeze.

Rudy,
Eternal thanks. That did it. I was able to complete the job, with no further issues.

A women's barbershop quartet is bad enough, but one in which al least one of the voices is in bass clef?!

The women's bass and baritone are written in the bass-octave up clef. Tenors and leads are in straight treble.

Thank goodness! For a moment you had me worried that some of your choir members were either heavy smokers or that you should perhaps have verified their gender.

This Lyric Tool bug is not new to Finale. 2011 does the same thing when all measures are set to break Smart Word Extensions (I just tested it). It seems to me I may have made that suggestion to help control extensions. Since there is obviously a bug there, I take the advice back.
