Staff spacing

The vertical positioning of staves and systems within frames is known as staff spacing. Staff spacing calculations consider the height of staves and the necessary gaps between staves and systems.

  • You can change the default vertical and staff spacing settings for each layout independently on the Vertical Spacing page in Layout Options.

The options available allow you to set your ideal spacing, which Dorico Elements then produces as closely as possible. We recommend familiarizing yourself with the available vertical spacing options.
