A quick test for this is the Selection Tool as well. With the Selection Tool selected, double click the lyric you want to continue. The Lyric Tool will be chosen, and (this is the coolest!) you will automatically be in the correct Verse, Chorus or Section in the right Layer!

It's quite possible that you wrote the lyrics in "Not Verse 1". It's easy to move between Verse numbers/lines with the up and down arrows. The Lyrics Window will show you which Verse number your lyrics are in.

This is a choral piece. I have entered what I thought was all of the text, but now I would like to add repeated words. Using the Lyric tool and Type into Score, when I click on a note in Layer 1 (the same layer I had been using), I get a new cursor, as if all of the previous entered text had been entered in a different layer.

If I go ahead and enter with the 'new' cursor, it produces a word extension that flows through the whole piece.

The file is too big to attach.
