Automatic spacing issue between staves on only some parts of the score
I have attached a picture of what I mean as well as the score. I'm working on a score right now and am having some issues with spacing between staves. My score is 4 Voice + piano at the moment and I have lyrics written for the first line. Most of the lyrics are spaced fine, but on the first page and one of the pages I attached, there is extra space below the lyrics when I have automatic placement on. Without automatic placement, the lyrics are where I expect them to be, although the automatic placement is really nice as well for the horizontal spacing.
I have experimented with the other settings to try and fix the issue and when I set the minimum spacing to -2.0, the staves sits as normal. This was okay for a little bit, but eventually I have found myself running to other issues as a result. I was wondering if there was a fix for this issue or if I was misusing something in the program since I'm relatively new to Musescore. Thank you!
