ChordPro: {new_page} directive causes unwanted empty page
In case a page is almost completely filled with chords and lyrics, adding a {new_page} directive adds not only the intended page break but also an additional unwanted empty page.

The following steps reproduce this behaviour on my 7.9'' tablet with a 1024 x 768 pixel 4:3 display.
It should be possible to reproduce the issue on any device.

I import the attached DerMondIstAufgegangen.pro

Text Display Settings > Auto-Size Font
Title Size: 47
Meta Size: 40
Lyric Size: 40
Chord Size: 40
The longest line
'der Wald steht schwarz und schweiget'
determines the value for Lyric Size as expected

With the new_page directive still commented out
reducing size values to
Title Size: 35
Meta Size: 10
allows keeping
Lyric Size: 40
Chord Size: 40
and getting the desired page break with
'verschlafen und vergessen sollt!'
as the last line of page 1 and
'Seht ihr den Mond dort stehen?'
as the first line of page 2

As soon as I remove the # so that
becomes active the mentioned unwanted empty page 2 is created and
'Seht ihr den Mond dort stehen?'
is moved to page 3

It seems that {new_page} is considered to be the first line of page 2, leaves page 2 empty and creates the page break after page 2 instead of after page 1

reducing Lyric Size (keeping all other size values unchanged) until the empty page disappears ends up with
Lyric Size: 37

removing the { before new_page proves that the space required by the new_page directive is the cause of the issue,
new_page} is displayed as the last lyric line of page 1

Expected behaviour:
the line height of the {new_page} directive shall be assumed as =0 like line comments (lines starting with #) so that {new_page} does not need vertical space

My second device has a 16:10 display. Sometimes I want to keep the same page breaks and rather accept unused empty space at the bottom of the page.
