Orchestra Score Extends Down off of Page

• Feb 6, 2021 - 06:24

I created an orchestra score in MuseScore 3.6 using the Classical Orchestra Template. I then added several more instruments to the score. However, now the score extends down off of the page and disappears; in other words, it is not scaled to fit the page vertically, as seen in the screenshot below.

How can I fix this? I reset all page settings to default, but that did not help, and I couldn't find any style settings related to resetting the vertical scaling.

Any advice would be appreciated, as the score is currently unusable.

You can also make the score smaller to fit your paper size (few people have A3 printers after all). Go to format / page settings / scaling / staff space. Make that value small enough for your score to fit a page. I do that for most of my scores. I set the value to 1.600. You can still read the music without problems if you print it and put it on a music stand. Plus you have an easier time arranging for doable page turns.
