What it does

These options control the spacing of accidentals in relation to both the notes they are attached to

and other accidentals in an entry.

When the Vertical Spacing Between Accidentals is 4 (above left), both flats may occupy the same vertical position, because their noteheads aren't less than four lines and spaces apart. If the Vertical Spacing Between Accidentals is 6 however, one of the flats must move to the left to avoid crowding, because the noteheads are indeed less than six lines and spaces apart.
