Spacer does not work from last stave to page bottom

On some pages, I have more lyrics or other elements that make the last stave of the last system on the page “longer” on the Y axis than on other pages.

I would like to use a spacer to raise the bottom margin on that page, because the lyrics aren’t automatically distanced from the footer text, but that does not work.

Setting the music bottom distance page style “works” but affects all pages, even those with less lyrics (e.g. one verse less).

Setting lyrics bottom distance doesn’t help in any way.

Can you attach a score that shows these issues? I fixed quite a few things in the area, some should be in 3.0.5, others in master, and there are also other improvements pending as well.

Weird, I thought I had set it to not hide my email address, since it's hardly a secret if you a basic web search. But I guess disbaling the contact form means, no contact at all? I've fixed that.

But FYI, I'll always prioritize official bug reports where communication is kept open. If problem is specifc to one particular score that can't be shared publicly, it's not going to get the same attention as a problem that is easily reproducible from scratch in a score that can thus be shared publicly, or even one that persists in your private score if you remove whatever is private about it.

I can wait if you can :-). You could also test with a recent build to see if it's already fixed. As I said, I fixed quite a lot in this area lately already.
