Default Blank verses in lyrics


I have been trying to create some SA + TB scores in a "hymn book" style with just one set of lyrics between the two staves. When I view or print the score there is a lot of white space between the lyrics and the TB stave. On investigating, I found there is a set of blank verse lines below the last verse which presumably is what is generating the extra white space.

So I edit the lyrics to delete the blank lines under the first word of the last verse, go along the lyric line to make sure there are no more extra blanks - and it makes no difference! When I re-edit the lyrics, the blanks have come back again. I just don't seem to be able to get rid of them.

I even tried exporting the lyrics to a Notepad file, deletying them and adding them back - and the blank verse lines re-appear.

It's just a bit of an annoynace as it means I cannot print as many systems as I might like on the same page and the lyrcis are quite a long way visually from the TB line.

Sample attached. Any clues?
