inconsistent staves/systems per page.

• Jul 26, 2018 - 19:54

Hi, I'm working on a piece, and I was editing the spacing when I noticed that some pages have 2 systems per page and others have 3. Except the first page, all pages have four staves in each system. Why is this? I have some line breaks but I've removed all page breaks. I've added the piece below. Can someone help me? Thanks!

The lyrics are the difference. Extra space is allocated for them. So, staves with lyrics take more spaces than staves without. As suggested above, you could reduce the overal music size if you want to fit more on a page given the existing lyrics.
