I have two systems on each page of a score (a piano quartet—piano, violin, viola, cello). I like the placement of the top system, but on every page (except page 1—let’s ignore page 1), the lower of the two systems is too far down on the page. If I select all systems in the piece (except the systems on page 1) and decrease the “distance between systems” number in the “Edit System Margins” tool, yes, the systems will move closer together, but the placement of the top system on each page will also change. My question: Given that all pages of my score have two systems, is there a way for me to GLOBALLY move the lower system closer to the upper system WITHOUT changing the vertical placement of the upper system? I know I can do this one page at a time; I’m wondering if there’s a way to do this for the whole score at once. "Space Systems Evenly" doesn't do the trick—the systems are placed too far apart vertically.
