MuseScore 3 misplaces MuseScore 2 lyrics in Continuous View

Jul 9, 2019

When importing MuseScore 2 scores with lyrics, MuseScore 3 misaligns the lyrics in Continuous View. This problem was noted many months ago but has not been addressed in the current version, Page View and Single Page View lyrics show correctly, but Continuous View lyrics often overprint the staves below.
This does not happen if the score is created in MuseScore 3, only for scores imported from earlier version.
Since there are thousands of MuseScore 2 and even MuseScore 1 scores, when will this bug be fixed?
