Gap between time signature and repeat bar

I’d like to increase the distance between these two elements but I can’t find a setting in Engraving Options which affects this.
Gap between time signature and repeat


Engraving Options / Spacing Gaps / #5 “Gap after mid-system time signature” isn’t really correctly named as it will also affect an initial gap between a time sig and repeat. It may be too heavy-handed as it affects the whole project, but you could try increasing that a bit.

Thank you. I’m afraid I didn’t try that setting as it wasn’t correctly named and I remember their being a setting in previous versions without the ‘mid-system’ limitation.
I understand the Dorico team’s choice in this, as one might argue that the beginning of a piece doesn’t require a forward repeat, but there are still moments at which this might be necessary.
