Is the a way of setting the width of a single measure.? I have section of my piece ending on a single measure. The other measures are nicely spaced so I would like to leave them that way. If I force a new system the measure the single measure stretches across the page.
I can leave it at a narrow width by putting a double bar line at the end of the measure, then deleting the extra bars. Then I can’t start a new system.

This works the same way in print view.

Of course I can work around this by adjusting measures per system, and notation font.

There is no way in iOS to do this, but you can adjust measure lengths in Win/Mac.

As I was searching for the answer to adjusting the width of the measure for Win/Mac, I came across this post elsewhere in the forum: "Enable View > Show Layout Handles command (CMD-L or CNTRL-L). There will be small boxes (handles) at each bar line. You can grab them and move them to compress or expand the measure width."

Worked like a charm for making that final system look more uniform!
