I have a score layout problem that I can’t solve.!
See those red boxes? Click on them and press delete so that dorico can revert to the default spacing. You’ve dragged those staves around, which is why they look that way.
Yes. I can delete all of the red boxes but one! Thanks for your reply.
Also does not explain the screwy stem length in one measure, which I definitely did not do in any way.
For the stems, go to Engrave mode; if you click on one of the noteheads, down in the Properties panel at the bottom of the screen you’ll see a property turned on under Beaming, “Start Y offset.” Turn this off, and you should be back to normal.
Click on one of the others and then use the arrows to select the desired box.
Also, trying to click directly on the boxes doesn’t work very well; click in the space just to the right. Often this yields better results.
