Too little spacing where upwards and downwards stems meet

I think there should be more space between the last 16th on beat 2 and the note on beat 3. Score attached.

Agreed, that doesn't look good. It will open happen that way in relatively crowded settings, but still, probably the defaults could be improved. meanwhile, I would recommend increasing the "Minimum note distance" in Format / Style / Measure, and then perhaps decreasing the "Spacing" to compensate.

Yes, and actually, I should say - you'll actually get better spacing overall that way. That is, a very small (even 0.0) minimum note distance, with breaks placed manually to prevent things from being as crowded as that would otherwise mean - will give more even spacing from measure to measure within a system, even for the same exact same number of measures on a system, than having larger minimum note distance. That's just due to quirks in how the spacing algorithm works, Surprised me when I realized this not too long ago. Anyhow, we're hoping to revamp some of these algorithms for MuseScore 4.
