Layout stretch shortcuts don't work on MuseScore 4

• Jan 3, 2023 - 02:40

Increasing and decreasing layout stretch should be doable with the { and } shortcuts, but these don't work on MuseScore 4. I don't think the shortcut changed however, because accessing stretch through the format menu still shows { and } as being shortcuts. I've tried manually adding the shortcut (though technically I'm redefining it as the same shortcut it's already supposed to be) but this doesn't work. Is there any way around this, or is it just a temporary bug?


I also chose to do my most recent project in Mu 4. The new flow is awesome, but the layout is giving me trouble.

The attached example is a cello excerpt from a chamber piece. My intuition says I should be able to fit two bars per system at staff spacing 1.750 and A4 paper. But playing with layout stretch (yes, keyboard shortcut doesn't work, but neither does the dropdown menu, or the measure properties dialog) yields no results.

If I'm stuck, I'm stuck. But if anyone has an idea, I'm all ears. I'd hate to use a different paper size or staff spacing for just the cello part because of this one figure -- I'd rather it look a little cramped...

Thanks for any help,
