I want to convert my working library of music from Sibelius to Notion.  

Most of my music is lead sheets or band charts to songs with lyrics.  Very often songs have multiple verses which appear under the melody staff (in Sibelius)  When I export from Sibelius and import to Notion via XML song that has multiple verse lines (under one staff) it opens but all the verses appear stacked on top of each other.  How can I separate them?

You may be able to simply arm your mouse pointer with the select tool (Press Escape on your keyboard) and then manually drag the lyrics into the desired location.  Aside from that, if you need to clear them to re-enter, you can select your entire score and right-click the selected notation.  You can then go into Edit>Clear Special and choose lyrics.
