Hi Kieren,

I can't imagine such a score either, though isn't it the challenge to
transform a score with chords/notes/lyrics there into a leadsheat?
Then you may have hyphenated text in such a score which should be
transformed into one word in the text of a leadsheet.

Look at the german children song:

In the last meaure of second line the chords could be done like
E/E   E/B    E/Gis  E/E
Af -- fen -- ban -- de
(No ligature, every syllable with it's own chord-symbol)

In a leadsheet I'd then expect
E/E E/B E/Gis E/E
with ligature at "ff" and reasonable distributed chord-symbols.

Or are my expextations wrongly?
