StaffText

A text staff is a staff type which contains only text. This text can be edited in the manner of a lyrics line (in fact, a text staff is just a lyrics line without a staff support). Since there are no notes for spacing guidance, a syllable of text can only be inserted one a beat.

Even if the text has no chromatic values, using Virtual Singer, the staff can render sounds, generating a spoken sound.

Staff menu items Edit

Due to the small amount of data types that a text staff can contain, several pointless features were excluded.
