I want to shorten the length of the final bar in the line, without any of the other bars moving. Is this possible?
Turn on View: Handles. You'll see a marker just past the end of the last stave. Drag it across.
You can do this without making the handle visible, once you know where it is.
The other bars in that line will re-size to accommodate the shorter line length. If you want just one bar compressed, Shift-Alt-LeftArrow and Shift-Alt-RightArrow will compress or expand the spacing of just a selected bar or bars.
thank you Laurence. I am looking for a way to adjust the length of only the final bar. As far as I can see moving this handle moves all of the bars in the lin. Feb 14, 2018 at 3:07
