[openlp-dev] Optional Split Saga

I confess I have no idea what the Optional Split does (what? read the
doc?). The only splitting I do is to add a second ---[Verse:1]--- to split
a long verse into two screens.

The Optional Split button inserts [---] which doesn't seem to do anything.
There's no Divide button, so I guess that's in newer code than I have.

>From what you wrote, I assume the Divide (Force Split) does the same thing
I accomplish by duplicating the label as described in my first paragraph

Side note: I read somewhere that it's not good to have more than six lines
on the screen, for the viewers' sake. So I've been splitting long verses as
I get to them.
