I am trying to make a music theory exam in Dorico and I am having quite a difficult time formatting the staff systems for the exam. In particular, I am finding it difficult to work with Dorico when empty staves are used without time signatures. Is there a way to control the length of the staff system?
Issue 1: Dorico does not extend the final system of a flow all the way to the far right of the music frame (see System Problem). The only way I was able to get these measures to appear as they should was by adding an additional measure of music. But then when I deleted this measure, the music went back to how it was before (see System Problem II). I wish there were a way I could use the Staff Spacing Tool to control the length of the entire system.
Issue 2: How can I format staff systems for empty bars? (see Empty Bar Formatting). I would like two blank measures per system. I am having trouble using the Format Systems tool with these measures since I don’t have any note heads to click to make a system.
Any help with these issues would be most appreciated!
