I don't know what modifications you made, so I'll try to explain the metrics of this theme based on original CSS.
I believe this image sums up all the relevant attributes related to horizontal and vertical position of elements.
All you need is to edit the CSS acconding to your liking. I hope it helps.

I'd like to remove the space before the lyrics, is it possible?

Can you post a screenshot?
Here's how, if you don't already know

Like so, > press URL button to get [url][/url] > then,

or, if you just want to use a word or description, do this,
[url=paste url here]paste screenshot name or other word(s)/descriptions here[/url]

I'm using v. 4.1.14.1813. I tried reinstalling the script - no change in the results.

What version of MM? Have you tried reinstalling the script?

OK, I'm having a problem with the lyrics display running all the lines together, despite several lyrics tagging programs showing them correctly. I know this has been discussed before, but after trying the solutions mentioned, I still need help.

I tried editing LyricsViewer.vbs and replacing
HtmlMarkup=Replace(Txt,vbNewLine,"<br>" & vbNewLine & " ") with
Txt=Replace(Txt,vbLf,vbNewLine)
HtmlMarkup=Replace(Txt,vbNewLine,"<br>" & vbNewLine & " "
but that didn't help.

I also tried the edit by searching for
LyrTxt=HtmlMarkup(Sng.Lyrics) and replace it with LyrTxt=Sng.Lyrics. Then searching for Doc.Add " <p>" & LyrTxt & "</p>" and replace it with Doc.Add " <p><pre>" & LyrTxt & "</pre></p>" but I couldn't get that to work either.

If anybody could help with this, I'd really appreciate it. I really like the simplicity of the lyrics viewer, but the lyrics all run together like that is frustrating.

I don't remember if that's possible (I don't have MM in front of me right now), but even if it is, I wouldn't recommended it. If you are using MM to
casually listen to music and aren't doing any editing, tagging, multiple select, ripping, etc., your probably okay. But those activities listed are quick, constant,
repeating retrieval triggers and you could have problems freezing and such. I used to have that and just turned off the auto lookup function because I'm
the kind of person who clicks on tracks and elements all around the interface "all the time". Only on occasion do I "only" listen for lengthy periods of time.

Text, in general, adds a miniscule difference to any files, even documents; primarily made of text elements. Once the lyrics are retrieved, repeated
track loading for playback should be just as smooth as before.

Thanks again. I'm going to be re ripping a bunch of CDs that I had previously ripped years ago as low res mp3's, will now do them as flac files. Now that MM is set up right for lyrics, it should add them as I rip them, I assume? It doesn't look like it makes the files too much bigger. Does it cause any problems loading the track if it has a page of lyrics in each song?

You can retrieve them from MM's art and details pane by clicking on lookup lyrics link.
You can also set them to be retrieved automatically by configuring in MM > Options.
It will bring it into the lyrics tab of properties and should automatically sync to tag. Either way, after, L&CV should show them.
But, I don't think it will work from directly in the add-on. The auto from options only adds when it plays a track or you click on it.
Mass lyric tagging can cause overload problems.

OK, I think I figured it out. Under Options --> Library --> Metadata Lookup, I needed to have the search and save missing lyrics automatically checked. If I select an album now and do a auto tag from web now it adds lyrics, but do I have to do that with each album? Is there a way to have it add lyrics to all the titles in my collection somehow?

And, is that maybe not a good idea, does it cause any problems in loading the music files, or storage, etc?

Thanks,

Sorry, I'm not too sharp on all of this.. I guess the lyrics are not in the tags, I didn't know that. Does one have to copy them in manually each time you want them in a song's tagg? I thought the plugin would somehow show them automatically.. do you have to click on the link to Google each time you want to see them?
In Music Bee it pulls them up automatically if they are available; I guess it is pulling them up from the web?

I've used it for years and I don't think it's ever worked to retrieve from within the script.
You are retrieving lyrics with MM and they show in MM properties, but don' display in L&CV?
Are the lyrics still in properties after you exit MM and reopen?

I had no problem installing it and I have it up in the right hand corner with the title bar. I can select a song and every one I select it gives me the same, "There's no lyrics in id3v2 tag" and you can "search using Google," which works, but doesn't solve the problem. I have re auto tagged from MM and it shows that it has found everything, but the lyrics still don't show.

Please help, thanks,
