In the spacing section you can also select when a full document (re-)spacing has to take place.
You can force a full respacing by checking "Always Apply Music (Re-)Spacing to Full Document Before Processing
This option makes sense if the part layout is still "raw" and multi-measure rests haven't been created either.
If you have applied music spacing to the document or if "Automatic Music Spacing" in Finale's preferences had been switched on (it must be switched off before running the plugin! See here
), you don't need to check this option.
By default it's unchecked.
If chord symbols are found and there is at least one measure with three chords or an overlapping of chords is very likely (e.g. chords at end of measure or wide chord suffices), a (re-)spacing is always performed, when the option "Always Respace If Chords Found
" is selected.
When the spacing settings are optimized, a (Re-)spacing is only applied to the document if "Force Full Document Respace If Major Spacing Settings Change
" is checked.
It is selected by default.
Other situations where the spacing may change are described in the overview
