page format question

• Oct 24, 2021 - 05:33

When I am editing music, how do I make the page show three lines of music instead of just two? I do not want to add another "instrument," I want the music to have three lines to fill down to the bottom of the page (see picture below for reference).

By "lines" here I assume you mean "systems" - that is, you currently have two systems of four staves each, you want three systems but still four staves. At your current page and staff size, that probably just won't fit. So see the link above for info on how to choose either larger paper or smaller staves. Also you'll need to remove the page break.

But also note, you have a title frame there with no title. hard to say from just a picture, but if you don't intend to add a title, maybe consider deleting the frame, then maybe the third system will fit on this page. Also keep in mind, it's common that fewer systems will fit on the title page than subsequent pages.

if you need further help, please attach your actual score rather than just a picture, so we can understand and assist better.
