Trick for equally dividing staffs between two pages.

• Sep 19, 2018 - 03:21

Would someone please tell me, other than change the spacing between the staffs/trial and error, the trick for dividing up the number of staffs equally between two pages? I'm doing a full orchestra score and trying to set the individual parts to not have a small number of staffs on the final page is really frustrating.


It takes quite a bit of math that considers page size, margins, size of any title text...

The easy way is, count the number of systems, put a page break at the end of the middle one then change the max system distance in Style->General...->Page to large enough that both pages are full. It will vary from part to part since different parts have different numbers of measures with notes.
