How is the title positioned on the page? Is room reserved for Author, Copyright, etc. even if those fields are empty? I have the Staff Upper Boundary set to 5, which is the minimum for a five-line staff. There is still over 1/2 inch between the title and the top staff. Is there any way to reduce this, other than disable the title and print it as text, which would be a pain?
if you're working with NWC 2.75 you can use "PageTxtMaestro.nw" user object to have more control over some text parameters on your score.
HERE (https://forum.noteworthycomposer.com/?topic=9215.0) is the link to the post of this user object. Try it and write again if you need more help :)
Thanks. I haven't done much with NWC in quite a while, and I'm still at 2.51 (though I follow the forum). I'll upgrade and try your suggestion.

You can reduce the font sizes to reserve less space.
Boundary changes can be used for "system by system" spacing.
Normally the option "Justify printed systems vertically" (in page setup - options) is switched on. I am not sure, but I think it existed already in version 2.51.
In an extreme case (for instance if only one staff group fits on one page) the space between the title and the first staff can be ridiculous large.
By switching off this page option you can normalize the space between the title and the first staff, moving the empty space to the end of the page.
