Controlling Width and Number of Measures per Line?

Can I control the printed width of measures? Specifically, can I get NWC 1.31b (32-bit) to print exactly four measures on each line, each the same width? For teaching beginning violin students, this is pretty important. If a measure is narrower than the rest, they think they can go faster...

In version 1.31, the File | Page Setup dialog has a switch saying "Increase note spacing for notes of longer durations". Make sure that is checked.

The other thing you can do (which becomes extremely tedious) is add spaces as Text. These of course should have the Preserve Width attribute turned ON. These will pad out notes. They give you fairly good control, but are very tedious to put in, check, adjust, check, add some more...
