1. Sometimes it can help the music to look clearer and be easier to read if the number of bars on each system stays constant.
  2. Dorico makes this easy to achieve by way of a Layout Option that lets you fix a number of bars per system.
  3. Open Layout Options from anywhere in the program by pressing Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+L, and selecting Staves and Systems, Casting Off.
  4. Enable the option for Fixed number of bars per system and set how many bars you would like to see.
  5. There are other options including one to set how many systems should be shown on each page, which can help make spreads and booklets look more balanced.
