In the select bars dialog, make sure that your not getting the select to and
select from edit boxes the wrong way round.

When you paste lyrics in the way you're trying, you need to press Ctrl+V for
each lyric in turn.

If the pasted lyrics are going to have exactly the same rhythm as the copied
ones, and be on exactly the same staves, then you only need to select all
the lyrics and paste the selection.

1. Go to bar 31.
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+G.
3. Type in 46.
4. Check the system passage button.
5. Press Enter.
6. Choose Edit > Filter > Lyrics.
7. Go to bar X on the first staff that you want the lyrics to appear on.
8. Press Ctrl+V but do *NOT* press Ctrl+L first.

If the pasted lyrics will have different rhythms or be on different staves,
then you have to copy them staff by staff.

1. Go to bar 31 on the staff whose lyrics you want to copy.
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+A.
3. Type in 46.
4. Press Enter.
5. Choose Edit > Filter > Lyrics.
6. Go to the first note that you want the lyrics to appear above.
7. Press Ctrl + L or choose the lyrics style that you want from the create
8. Press Ctrl + V once for each lyric without pressing any other keystrokes.
I.E. press Ctrl+V Ctrl+V Ctrl+V.
9. Go to bar 31 on the next staff of lyrics.
10. Repeat steps 1-9.

Note that in step 7 you can choose any lyric style you like. So you can use
this method to paste line 1 lyrics into chorus lyrics.

If you're not using scripts I'd turn screen echo to all so that you can here
the pos and bar fields in the properties window updating each time you press

Hope this helps,
