If you would like to add lyric text that highlights phrases as the song plays back, there is an easy way to do it. First, type or paste in a screen full of lyrics at the beginning of the song. Press the "Plus" button to make this screen of lyrics into a lyric event at the beginning of the song. Now play the song. While the song is playing back, press the "Plus" button at every point where you want different highlighting. A copy of the lyric event will be inserted everywhere that you press the "Plus" button.

Now you can click on each of the new events and edit them to change the highlighting. The most common approach is to change the font color of a phrase. After editing each event, press the "Plus" button to save it into the timecode list, replacing the event that is currently there at this time.

If you don't want to use "garish" colors and still keep to using white text, you could start the whole process by using a medium or dark gray color for the entire text, and then make the highlighted phrases white.

Comments are welcome,

Our band was hanging out in apartments for rent in Leesburg VA when we saw this post, and we called our guitarist living in apartments in Fort Myers.

He suggested we meet in one of his apartments in Leesburg so that we can try this tip. We ended up with nice lyric graphics while looking at apartment ratings.

I want to add that we just finished our gig in a party held at Green Trails apartments Lisle IL and in Crystal Lake apartments, we tried this tip and it was a blast!

We had friends visiting from Skyridge Club apartments and BYU Idaho Housing and a great time was had by all!

We just finished gigs at apartments Chicago offers, apartments Gold Coast and apartments in Alexandria VA and it was smooth. Nice crowds, though small.

We will also do downtown Minneapolis apartments soon. This suggestion here in this thread is working real well.
