That's why you can select "Systems/page"...

Notice, however, that if you have e.g. a full orchestral score selected, in 
most cases only 1 system fits onto a page, so "Systems/page" is set to 1. If 
you then select another type, where more than one system fits on a page, the 
"Systems/page" does NOT change. You'll have to change it manually.

I didn't want to change automatically change the "Systems/page" to an optimal 
value when you select a different score-type, because that would be too 
Imagine, for example, that you choose a "Single staff, treble clef" and select 
14 systems (staves) per page. If you then select "Single staff, bass clef", 
you probably still want 14 systems/page. I don't want to reset the 
Systems/page setting in this case...

However, it might make sense to find some heuristics when it makes sense to 
reset (e.g. if you switch from full orchestral score to single-staff systems).

Yeah, I'll think about it. However, then I'll also have to allow more than 15 
systems on a single page...
