I thought i was being clever, using a hairpin to force extra space between staves in a system, then hiding the hairpin (properties: color=0% opacity). I have used this 0% opacity to rests I don’t want to see and can’t get rid of any other way.
The hairpin trick works to create space – but, reliably (three times in a row), choosing the hairpin and then selecting properties: color causes the spinning color wheel of death (Mac).The wheel doesn’t stop, so I have to force-quit.
Too bad. Any ideas about other things I could use, then hide to force extra space between system staves? Or do I just have to wait for vertical spacing to be implemented in a future update?
