Hello! My question is as follows:
I'm writing for a trio (violin, cello, piano).
I have set staff distance = 6sp and grand staff distance = 8sp (for the piano).
In this way, I have 6sp between violin and cello and 6sp between cello and upper piano staff.
I would like to widen the space between the cello and the first piano staff to 10sp throughout the score, in page mode.
When I use the "staff spacer down" in the first system, it affects only this system and not the rest of the score.
I have a score of 300 measures, so clearly it's out of the question to use spacers in each and every system.
So, is there a way to modify solely this exact staff distance to e.g. 10sp ?

You are right, thank you. But I think I found a rather faster way.
Just shift+click on the upper piano staff and drag it up or down. It moves and this movement applies throughout the score.
I found this mentioned by Marc Sabatella in a thread of 2016!
Thanks anyway, though!

For anyone reading this, the shift+click and drag feature was removed in version 3.

So I guess we're left with the "Add extra distance above staff"? Am I right mike?

Good point about version 3 vs. version 2.
For the time being, and especially in this forum, it's a good idea to routinely state one's version of MuseScore.
With the new (stable?) version 3 release, there's much hootin' and hollerin', gnashing of teeth... also people reverting to version 2 -- hence lots of people on "different pages".
Apply a Staff spacer fixed down to Violin first measure;
Increase the Stave distance
Edit :( Doesn't seem to work
