Layout changing when saving score

• Mar 3, 2022 - 22:21

I have an odd problem with some of my scores. Sometimes, when I add a line break so that some measures will be in a system together, and it appears to work, the layout will change on saving the score, typically causing one measure to jump to its own line. I don't know how to make it happen deliberately on a new score, but I've attached a recording of the bug happening on an existing score.


The reason is a rounding difference between the moment you added the system break and only a part of the system layout was recalculated vs a change where the whole system is recalculated.
A solution in these edge cases is to select all the measures that should belong on the one system and reduce stretch once for them.

In that case, instead try reducing the overall spacing or minimum note distance for the score itself, in Format / Style / Measure. Or reduce staff size slightly (Format / Page Settings). Or simply put fewer measures on that systems.

It's also possible the problem is something else. As mentioned, if you attach your actual score (not just a picture of it), we can understand and assist better.
