Thank you very much, @Lillie_Harris and @MarcLarcher ,for your suggestions.
So: no red triangle override, no override of the music frame padding. However, there were two red handles on the two systems. When I deleted them, the systems spread out with a big gap, since the page was 81.x% full and I was using the default threshold of 80% for ‘system justification only’. I changed it to 82% and the page now looks great.
So initially system justification does not seem to have kicked in, due to the mysterious system overrides. I swear to the Almighty I have not consciously done anything toward setting them Would you have any idea on what could have created them? I’m attaching the project.

@MarcLarcher , thank you very much for the video suggestion, I’ve watched the ‘vertical justification’ section, it didn’t work exactly like that in my case and when thinking why that was, I discovered the system overrides, after removing which the project started behaving like the one in the video.
Incidentally: why aren’t vertical justification options flow-relative? Here I have just a short, 3-movement Sinfonia, but in bigger pieces I’d be wary that changing this option for one flow might have unintended consequences for some other flow…
Thank you again!
