I want my score to have four bars per system except the first system, if I have a pickup bar, in which case I want that one to have 5 bars in it (obviously...)
I have found a previous thread from 2017 where the support got back to someone with a similar question but unfortunately, their advice doesn't work for me. What they said was: link the first bar to the second one. They also said, you might have to mess around with the notation size, which I have but still nothing has changed, the first system still has four bars in it. leaving my overall score very asymmetrical. In this thread they also say that I might have to wiggle around with the layout handles, which I also have but still nothing has changed... Please, I ask the support people kindly, to try out what I am talking about because the method they mentioned to the previous person asking the same question just doesn't work. I am a jazz musician and I am writing lead sheets on a daily basis and it feels like it takes unnecessarily too long to sort out the layout and formatting of my sheets after having payed for a software... I can do my scores on a similar pace with a free software too but then what's the point of purchasing professional software if not for the precious time that could save with them?
