Hi all

I have a piece with a written out piano intro directly followed by a
leadsheet with lyrics. The lower staff is only needed for the intro.

Now the chords appear below both staffs in the intro, but stay there,
when the leadsheet/with lyrics starts. Then the chords are between
melody and lyrics instead of above as it is the case when i have only
one staff. How can I force it to put the chords always above the piano

The layout is as follows:

\new PianoStaff <<
   \chords { ... }          % 24 bars
If you move the \chords outside the PianoStaff context, I guess
it will work as expected, i.e. something like

 \chords {...}
 \new PianoStaff <<
   \new Staff = upper ...


   \new Staff = "upper" {
     \upperIntro            %  8 bars
     \melody                % 16 bars
     \addlyrics { }
   \new Staff = "lower" {
     \lowerIntro            % 8 bars

Thanks, Sebastian.
