Stave distance / stretch - can't reduce it enough.

• Oct 21, 2019 - 13:51

I'm having trouble reducing my stretch enough. I have a piece of music that was 2 pages, scanned in it has become 3, and there are bars with only one note in, that .I want to reduce stretch on, and I can't.

I have tried reducing the size of note and stave, but it won't allow any less distance between.

I have gone into stave properties, and put a minus number for distance between staves, but this doesn't do anything.... any ideas much appreciated....

Either remove all system and page breaks or

  1. remove the page breaks in measure 38 and 72 (replace with a system break, probably)
  2. reduce staff stace from 1.75mm to e.g. 1.5mm
