Avoid squeezed music while playing with system breaks

Hi, I know this has been discussed somewhere, but I can’t find up where. I just don’t get why sometimes Dorico squeeze everything like this. How can I avoid this kind of situation?



The reason it happens is that a break can be set to “wait for next break” regardless of how much music there is in between. When you select a break signpost, this property is visible in the lower zone in Engrave mode.

When you use “Make into System” (or Frame) Dorico puts breaks before and after your selection, and the first one gets this “wait for next break” property.

Oh! I didn’t realize there were properties to system breaks. Thanks for your help!
