Is there a trick for forcing consistent staff spacing in the following scenario:
I have a score with both lyrics and chord symbols. Staves are spaced wonderfully, except for one staff where the chord symbols of one staff align between the lyric text in the staff above, causing the two staves to be closer together than the others. I tried adding a chord symbol at a place that forces the staves apart and then hiding it, but hiding forces the staves together again. Is there a way to make the collision-avoidance algorithm apply across the x-axis of the text style, for example, to eliminate these gaps?
I looked for an existing topic, but I haven’t found an answer using search terms that made sense. Thanks!
