No. There's no setting for that in the interface.
There isn't a specific ID for that in the skin XML either: lyrics are displayed according to <element id="ElementPanel.Default" ... />.

besides, i don't understand the option for lyrics in Layout (1)  
"use custom colour for highlighted text" ?
It's used with synchronised lyrics, to highlight the current line.

is it possible to simply convert lyrics to synchronized lyrics ?

Synchronised lyrics include timestamps, one before each line.
If you only add "[00:00.00]" at the very beginning of the lyrics, they will be considered as synchronised lyrics, thus displayed with the custom colour.

External lyrics files have the .txt extension, whereas synchronised lyrics files are stored with extension .lrc.
But the extension is not sufficient: an .lrc file without any timestamp inside won't trigger the use of the custom colour.

If you want to convert all your .txt files, it will require some programming work to produce a batch script that:
- scans you music folder tree(s) for .txt files;
- inserts "[00:00.00]" before the 1st line;
- renames the file to .lrc.

I don't know about lyrics stored within the audio files, since I always use external lyrics files.

Or try posting in the wishlist tab if you can't live without a custom colour for the non-synchronised lyrics.

finally files are saved in the same directory
so when there is file txt MB choose it by default and inserting [00:00.00] at the begining of the lyrics works fine

is it possible to save those text files in another folder like Music for example ?

Thanks for the feedback!

An external lyrics file
- must be in the same folder as the matching audio file
- must have exactly the same base name (only the extension differs).
