Stretch commands don’t work !

• May 5, 2021 - 10:16

Hi !
I always get one measure per page that stretches the whole width of the page despite having very few notes in it.

The brackets , the direct change and un stretch command and the make into system commands do NOT work to change it . There seems to be nothing I can do to unstretch these measures .

Please Help !!!!


Score needed.
I would guess those that you either have too many content in that measure, too wide barge borders, to narrow page width, or haf added system breaks

I'm guessing that there are some inserted breaks - try deleting them from the top down, and see how things reformat. That's usually what happens with my music anyway.

They are like "returns" in word processors - in a little dotted box - and appear above each stave which has them at the right end of the line.

Almost certainly you have system breaks indeed - either because you added them at some point when the notes weren't finalize yet, or because you started with the default empty score rather than creating a new one. Either way, the easy way to remove them all is to right-click one, Select / All Similar Elements, then press Delete.

Or if you need further help, please attach your score so we can understand and assist better.
