Old score: system and lyric spacing not what I am used to seeing on my new scores

• Apr 19, 2018 - 04:08

This score has the lyrics conflicting with the Voice 2 stems for the top staff. And the systems after the first are a bit closer than what I would have expected based on other recent scores I have started that are also on my profile. Is something set bad that I need to reset?

Apparently a 1.x score that got imported to and last saved with 2.2.1.
Increase system min distance (you had set it to -0.8) and lyrics upper margin, see attached, where I also reset all texts and the voltas to their 2.x default. Also turned the 1st measure into a true pickup measure and added the bracket to the system, the 2nd voltas and 2 missing lyrics syllables. Updated the score properties too.

"Increase system min distance and lyrics upper margin" This is great advice! It worked.

And wow! Your fix looks great. That brings up another question: Is there a way for me to take your score and put it as a replacement upload for mine in the link above? I tried the Update Score link a few days ago for another song, and got a web server (500, I believe) error. Would that be the correct way?
