Reduce measure stretch (drastically)
In the score that I've attached (time signature 6/8), is there a way to reduce the width of the measures in order to have 2 of them per line?
Or, at least (since they're truly wide measures), is there a way to squeeze only the 3/8 measure (8th in the row) to have it in the same line with the preceding one?
Thank you very much.

(a) In each measure : Measure properties --> Layout stretch=0.80
(b) Select measures --> Select: Notes --> Set: Chord Horizontal Offset = -0,5sp. Voila! It all comes to place without reducing the size of the notes! You may then alter some Layout Stretches to your best convenience.
I really think that the Muse Score team should propose this solution to the users and add it to the users' manual.

Setting measure properties and horizontal offsets are already mentioned in the handbook.
For your extreme case, i.e. drastically reducing measure stretch, you can create a "'How to".
