Lyrics pointer reset?

I am trying to dig my way into "Vocaloid", using Prima and Vocaloid 2. (BTW: I cannot find an official update to the – to my knowledge – latest 2.0.12 version of the editor, the version 2.0.6 shipped by Zero-G seems somewhat unstable).

A very important point, that I could not resolve by means of the manual, is: How do I reset the lyrics pointer by a simple midi message? Since the sample quality of "Prima" is very unbalanced (loud/soft, clear/unclear depending on what phonem is used) I have to adjust an awful lot of issues in elastic audio after a down render. It would make things easier to be able to just press a key on the hardware controller and resetting the lyrics pointer to the start of a phrase to work from there.
I know I can use the cursor keys to manually "wander" to the right syllable, but that’s not very helpful, since the editor does not always respond to cursor position changes AND I have to activate the lyrics window, which is exactly NOT what I want (I want to work on MIDI data base).

Second issue: I cannot get the VSTi plugin to output its MIDI data (I know there’s no Note-On-Note-Off, but editing MIDI raw data seems a lot easier than using the vocaloid editor itself). Other VSTi nicely output their MIDI creation after "MIDI OUT" is selected in the plugin menu. Am I missing something?

Any help would be highly apreciated!

Zero-G says: Midi code 63/62 is a lyrics pointer reset. Maybe someone else is looking for this :-)
