Thanks, this solved my problem partially. Now I have the score running as I 
want it, but the lyrics I can not get to the place I want. The lyrics must go 
under each bar of the GrandStaff, and not under the GrandStaff. this because 
I think the director will get us to sing different lyrics to the score on 
different times in the shows we perform in.

BTW, should this be included or referred to into the manual, as I think many 
novices, as I am, will stumble on. The regression-test has maybe an example, 
but something in the manual should be better, because the RTFM is one of the 
first things I do when something doesnot happen as I think they should.

Maybe you can give me some more hints on this.

For the other subjects I have made a testversion of the script to show you 
what I want to say.

Thanks in advance,
Herman Grootaers
