This plugin was previously includes with Left Align First Lyric In System, but is now available to be installed separately. Version 01.10.00.

Prior to version 01.10.00, Left Align First Lyric In System processed initial lyric syllables that needed a hyphen by appending 2 non-breaking spaces and a non-breaking hyphen to the lyric text to force a hyphen to appear. This made the hyphen appear, but hyphens did not extend as usual, and the spacing may not have been desirable.

This plugin was made to allow the lyric text to be edited to add or remove spaces or hyphens.

Robin Walker found a better way to handle such syllables in Left Align First Lyric In System, so it no longer adds the non-breaking spaces and hyphen and this plugin is no longer needed, but in case you have scores processed by earlier versions, it is now available to be separately installed.
