Hello. It's hard to describe this situation. Please see attachment. When working on a full score, if you want to have one part repeat the previous 4 bars, it forces all parts to cram 4 bars onto one line. Is there away around this, besides just not using this notation?

It doesn't look like you can split the line with the repeat sign, and as your top two parts have a lot of notes per bar they'll have to be squeezed to fit, as shown. You might get a reasonable spacing if you can increase the margins, or scale down the staff size on the score, or use a smaller notes size. There's my suggestions, anyhow.
