What it does

A convention used in opera or art song notation is beaming to lyrics. In this scheme, eighth, sixteenth, and shorter notes are never beamed together in the vocal line except when a syllable is sustained through more than one note (as a melisma). This dialog box lets you specify the lyrics you want rebeamed in this way.
