Unable to rationalize last page of a part

In the attached file the Lead Vocal Part has a long Tacet to the end, but with the sturcture shown by double barlines. The last bar has some system text attached. I really want to get the whole part onto one page, but whatever I do I can’t get the last bar to move to the first page, or even for the previous 3 bars rest to be on the same line as the last bar. I’ve tried “Move To Previous System”, Move To Next System". If I want to try “Make Into System” I can’t select both the last bar and the previous multirest bar. If I select the whole part, "Make Into Frame doesn’t work. Is there another way?

Before I download the project and open it, can you check whether there’s an existing system or frame break at the offending point, after showing signposts if they’re hidden?

Go to Layout Options > Vertical Spacing and reduce the Inter-system gap.

I don’t know why I didn’t think of that. They’re visible in all the other parts so I guess I must have switched them off in this part previously and didn’t realize. Sorry to trouble you!

And that was the final step. Thank you very much!
