Thanks very much for your reply On both this question and the other question.
I think I am missing something very fundamental. I go into Format Stretch decrease then the top three measures decrease in size allowing measure 4 to automatically pop up to the top line, all good to here. Then when i move on the 4th bar then automatically pops back down to line two. Its like I haven't saved my settings in order to move forward. I think this is similar to whats happening with my Muti measure rest situation on other thread.

Also, if you want four measures on the same system, you should decrease stretch for all of them, not just the three currently hogging the system. Otherwise the unstretched measure will be larger than the rest.

But better than fiddling with stretch is just to reduce overall spacing in Format / Style / Measure, and/or the staff space, so most systems fit the way you want by default. Right not it not really clear why those four measures don't fit, my guess is you've messed with stretch too much already. So I'd actually start by finding whatever problems you might have caused, by resetting all stretch in Format / Stretch. Then see if a style adjustment doesn't give you want you want already.
