Make bottom margins the same while retaining uniform staff spacing

• Jan 20, 2021 - 19:01

I have a piece of music (attached at the bottom of this document), and I would like for each of the section names to be on the top of the page. However, since most of the sections vary in length, there is almost no possible way to keep the line spacings and the bottom margin (where the music stops on the page) exactly the same from one page to the next as the number of lines differ between separate pages. Is there any possible workaround for this?

Thanks in advance for any help that is given!

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see any page breaks in your score so I can't see any differences in staff spacing. Anyhow, you shouldn't need to resort to spacers, the new vertical justification feature should spread the staves to fill toe the bottom margin automatically, with at most the need to increase the one setting (max page fill distance, in Format / Style / Page).

If you explain in more detail what you are trying to do, we can likely save you the trouble of adding spacers in the future, which is not only time consuming but also likely to break as soon as anything about the score layout changes.
