I just finished my full score, which looks good, and now that I’m proofreading parts, I’m seeing a LOT of this kind of thing, where crescendos and first endings and rehearsal marks aren’t properly being “noticed” by the spacing rules, and are thus colliding.
This passage is a perfect example. The first ending that belongs to m35 is drawn way too high because of the rehearsal mark, and thus it’s above the crescendo in m29-30, and is actually even inside the system beginning with m30.
Also note m30 where the rehearsal letter E collides with a dynamic underneath it.
My first preference is to learn how to tweak the engraving rules to avoid these collisions. My second preference would be to simply learn how to move one system out of the way of another system in Engrave mode.
Thank you. I had never known about the Library Manager before. After studying it and reconciling the differences, it turned out to be a couple of settings related to page size, which I don’t remember changing myself.
After comparing all the items that differed from the defaults, and resetting a few of them, my collisions are gone. Really strange, since I didn’t reset any parameters that should have allowed any collisions (e.g. page size shouldn’t have made a difference). In any case, my score is now collision-free so I’m good to go. Thank you!
