What it does
The Space Systems Evenly command, which
displays this dialog box, lets you specify which pages to space evenly,
whether to allow systems to move from one page to another, and when to
skip spacing a partially-empty page. Finale will move the systems so that
they are evenly spaced between the top and bottom margins of the page.

the Select Parts/Score dialog box where you can choose to apply changes
to any combination of the score and/or parts. Choose All parts to apply
changes to all parts and All Parts and Score to apply changes to the full

so you don’t end up with two systems and a vast white space between them.
