I am working on a piece and my problem |
is that the vocal parts are in 3/4 and the
orchestra is in 9/8. The lyrics will be
garbles/ overlapping. But when all are in
the same meter, there are no problems.
Could anyone please help me solving

The problem is that there is a bug that messes up spacing of independent time signatures. I've already asked Coda quite a few times to deal with this bug, but as yet nothing has happened. Do ask them as well (send message direct to [email protected]). For the moment it's better, if possible, to keep all staves in the same time signature and use tuplets when necessary.|
PS The dictionary doesn't like "messes"! It suggests things like "masses" or "mosses"...

There is a kind of hybrid solution that may work for you. |
First, set up the orchestral and vocal staves so that they may have independent time signatures (as no doubt you have already done). But then, enter all the parts in 3/4, using tuplets for the orchestral parts but not displaying any brackets or numbers.
Then in the Time Signature Tool, use 'Use a Different Time Signature for Display' to have all the orchestral parts display 9/8, even though they're really in 3/4.
Write if you need more detail.
