Vertical spacing and text

I am trying to enter music that has text descriptions and playing instructions, plus pedal on/off below. I am doing this with the shift-x text entry. I am running out of room between staves, as it seems that text entry, at least as I’m doing it, does not create vertical space. Am I correct? Or is there a way to get it to move staves apart to make room?

Text entered with Shift+X does not currently cause any collision avoidance to be carried out. This will be addressed soon, hopefully in the forthcoming 1.0.10 update (and if not, then in the next update).

Thank you, Daniel! You are a champ!
