I have what I think is a very nice note spacing and layout for a Haydn string quartet of 24 pages or so, using whatever Dorico has set as defaults, but the last few bars spill over onto a new page. This does not look professional. How can I encourage Dorico to finish at the end of a page and not overflow? The image here shows what is happening. I suppose I could squinch the notes in backwards by hand with adjusting all the breaks for many pages backwards, but that seems tedious and needlessly complex.
[Cello part not filled in yet - not that I think this would affect spacing here.]
I don’t want a really tight set last system just for the sake of pagination. I imagine this is a common matter.
