How to open space between staves for lorelines of lyrics

Finale Print Music 2010 on Windows 7

Hi,

I thought PMF automatically opened the space between staves as new lines of lyrics are added. Apparently I was wrong.

How do I spread all the choral staves (SATB) to get all my lines in?

Thanks

Greg

Select the staff tool. You will see handles at the left end of each staff. Just grab the handle and drag down.

Thanks Miker,
Apologies for the subject line typos, but you got the problem right and the solution. By "end" of line I was looking on the left and then spotted the small box on the first measure on the left.

Anyway, it's all good.

Thanks again for the help and for being there.

Greg
