Measures/bars per system/line

• Jun 17, 2019 - 07:37

I often open a score and find some pages with 3 systems , 4 systems and even 1 system per page. And sometimes find different numbers of measures per system or line. How to correct this, please?


MuseScore tries to fir as many staves, systems or measures onto a page as possible with the current size settings. You can fit mopre by decreasing those settings or less by either increasing them or adding system- or page breaks

If you have 3, 4 and 1 measure on systems in the same song, you probably set add/remove system breaks to 4. This setting simply inserts a system break every 4 measures. It's up to the user to either change the settings so more measures can fit on a system or manually change where system breaks are so they don't end up with only one measure on a system because it wouldn't fit on the one above. The reason there is only 1 is that it would have been the 4th measure on the system above and has a system break in that measure so the next measure is forced onto the next system.
