Is there a way to keep MS3.3 from adjusting vertical spacing of staves?
I have scores I have created in MS2.2 that I want to convert to MS3 file format, and having put a lot of work into positioning the elements I would like to preserve as much of this as possible through the conversion. I'm now converting one such score using the MS3.3.4 AppImage in Linux Mint. I selected "keep original positioning" when I imported the score. In a number of places there had been collisions between slurs in adjacent staves, which I had adjusted by hand to be readable (MS2 is like working on fixed-spacing manuscript paper). MS3.3 went ahead and increased the staff spacing so as to fix the collisions, but this brought the bottom staff down too low on the page. Is there a setting somewhere that will prevent this - or a way that I can readjust the vertical staff positions?
I have been a holdout until now on switching to MS3, and IIRC the main reason was the difficulty (as I found it then) of controlling the auto-positioning functions. It appears now that most of my earlier issues seem to have been resolved (thanks Marc), which is fortunate since I am eager to use some of the anticipated new features of MS3, including single-note dynamics (if and whenever that becomes available). Again, thanks to all those who participated in the development effort that has brought MS3.3 to where it currently is.
