Unnecessary space between staves

• Aug 10, 2016 - 22:13

I'd appreciate help on this little problem (score attached):

There are unnecessary large spaces between the staves from bar 45 to the end. There were originally 4 verses. I deleted the text of verses 2, 3 and 4 but the space hasn't reduced accordingly. How can I get rid of the unwanted space? I Wish I Knew How 4part.mscz


It looks like you deleted some lyrics but then moved other lyrics around (upwards, mainly) to get them to line up again. Unfortunately the lyrics are treated as still being on the imaginary horizontal line that they came from and the spacing for the next stave down is set with relation to the lowest lyric line, whether or not you have moved the actual text. The solution is to re-enter the lyrics, placing them where you want them and not to move them afterwards.
