For entering and synchronizing song text you should use Karaoke editor and Synchronization editor.  

A text item may contain a syllable, a word or a text line.  
Track number (1-255) must reference an existing track in MIDI file, otherwise the text will not be inserted.  

<line> set word to line break

<paragraph> set word to paragraph break

Insert picture
choose a picture from your harddisk (*.gif, *.jpg, *.png, *.bmp). This inserts a HTML tag <img src="imagepath"> into your text field. The existing image will be displayed in the karaoke view and printing.
