Hi,
I have successfully (or almost) scanned a score into finale however the system is too narrow to have the double voice and the lyrics so they are all crumbled together. I need some help to see how i can make the space between my TREBLE CLEF staff and my BASS CLEF on the system larger so that would be enough space there to fit my lyrics.
I appreciate your help,
have added an image to illustrate better my issue.

Thanks

staff tool, click once outside the bottom staff, in the left margin. The entire bottom staff should be highlighted. Tap your down arrow key until you have the space you need. To adjust single systems, with the staff tool, just highlight one measure in the bottom staff. Use the arrow keys to raise or lower the single system.

There are other methods which can do this, I think this is one of the quickest.

The Respace Staves menu item lets you set a value in just a couple of clicks.
