I have searched for this for a while, as usual the answer is probably right in my vision, but alas … So help would be much appreciated.
I am working on a thirty-player score. In Layout options > System dividers, I have chosen the “extra long” system divider to show (when the minimum number of players is one).
I noticed that the system divider in the attached picture called “Before frame break” didn’t look particularly elegant, the two systems looked crammed, and to me, it looks different from what I would expect Dorico to create.
I went to Engrave mode, chose the first bar of the first stave of the second system, and used the Frame break command. The system moved to the next page, so the two systems now took up a page each.
But the system divider remained below the first system, now alone on a page of its own – so that system divider is now redundant, but has nevertheless stayed behind.
So I wonder: Am I right when I think that the first version of the page looks quite crammed, and that the distance from the system divider to the other objects is dangerously short? I tried to adjust but it didn’t work – actually there were no changes.
And: If I do use Frame break, and the second system moves to a page of its own – how should I remove the now unnecessary system divider on the page before?
Sorry for clumsy explanations. Perfectly aware that all of this probably arises from poor grasps of concepts and basic knowledge: Thanks in advance.
