Last line is not spaced the same as earlier line in Tune

• Apr 21, 2024 - 03:54

Hello Everyone

I am trying to figure out how to fix the spacing in the last line of a tune I am trying to create for our tenor drummers in our pipe band. I am hoping someone will be able to help me figure it out. As you can tell I am new with this program and I am struggling with its basic stuff. They are not very user friendly I am finding compared to other programs. I would love some help if you know how to fix it.. Thanks K.
