strategies for justifying pages

Hi there,

I wonder if there’s a strategy for justifying vertical layouts for pages, so that individual orchestral parts are better justified to the bottom of a page. I find myself doing a lot of manual system and and frame breaks to balance out pages (especially final pages), whereas there’s probably a smarter way to do this, no?

I see there’s an option to justify content on the last system when it’s x% full, but is there a similar option for frames / pages?


Yes. Layout Options—Vertical Spacing—Justification. Set your percentages a little lower, and Dorico will vertically justify to fill the frame.

ah – thank you!!
