I think we probably agree to a very large extent on good spacing, but may view it in a slightly different way, i.e. I don't naturally think in terms of spaces and half spaces etc. but rely mostly on my eye and instinct. (I probably need to change that if I am going to be more efficient and exact in my engraving.)I agree with all your points, which makes me think we have somewhat different views on what constitutes extra space at the end of measures.
I couldn't agree more. This is one of those cases where the comments are easily understood by someone who already knows what the explainer is saying and thus doesn't really need them, but are not so helpful for someone who is inexperienced and really needs more specific help!I think that her explanation is so broad and so perfectly clear, that if used by a professional engraver it can result in a superb output, and in hands of amateur it can be a disaster.
