Last system — fill to page width

Is there a way to cause the last system on a page to fill to the page width? It looks strange to have four bars per system all down the page, but have the last line scrunched off to the left.

Speaking of systems: is there a way to set a default number of bars per system, so that I don’t need to insert breaks manually every four bars?

Duh, I see there is a way to constrain the number of bars per system, so I can have e.g. four bars per system. However I still don’t see how to make the last system fill the page if that option is not used.

I haven’t found a way to do this. Super annoying formatting issue.

I just posted this on your other question. There's a hack...

Make an extra measure at the end, force that extra measure to the next page. Add an ending bar line.

You will end up with an extra page of music with one blank measure, but you can print selected pages (even as a PDF) without it.

Dear Trevor,

in my opinion, this is the best way to complete the last page without an empty space:

Fill the last measure or some measures of the last system additionally with rests in eighths or sixteenths (you can do this in one empty measure of an instrument or in a second voice).
Now you can see, how the measure is widening. Then hide the inserted rests!

In general, this is a good method to stretch any measure...

Hopefully, I was able to help

Sincerely
Michael

Just posted about this in another thread. Screenshots included.

For Notion 6, go to View > Show Layout Handles (or Control + L). Little boxes will appear for each measure and system. Drag the boxes to have equal space for the system. The boxes on the left side of the system allow you to move the systems up and down.

Hope this helps!
Jeremy
