I’m having real bother with vertical spacing in the attached score. As far as I am aware, I have altered none of the defaults for staff spacing - the only changes I have made to default settings at all are changing the staff size, making the text size for lyrics larger, switching on Hide Empty Voices and forcing one system break (to coincide with the entry of the soprano solo).
Why, therefore, do I have overlapping systems on pages 3, 4 and 5? I would expect to be able to fit two systems per A4 page, but it’s a pain to have to toy with the settings with the music so obviously incorrectly laid out.
Any advice appreciated - I wonder if I’ve run into a bug or if this is something stupid that I have done. Many thanks!
