Adjusting Horizontal Staff Length Without Justifying

Hi Folks!

I have a short, three measure final staff. It’s a little too mushed for my tastes but otherwise I’m happy with the look of the document. Right now it occupies about 35% of the possible distance. I’d like to get closer to 50%.
Is there a way to stretch the system further without justifying it? So far, full justification is all I can figure out how to do.


Yes, see here:

Or, insert a note spacing change at the start of the system to make each bar wider without manually moving the end of the system.

You may want to increase the horizontal justification threshold to allow the final system to be wider without becoming justified.

Thanks Lillie! I didn’t catch that it was limited to using arrow keys with alt. I appreciate the help.
