Editing existing bar lines

For each bar line, you can choose whether you want a regular, single bar line, a double bar line, a repeat sign, etc.:


  1. Double-click the bar line for which you want to edit the settings.

    A dialog appears with a number of bar line types.

  2. If you want the bar line to be shown with “brackets”, activate the Brackets checkbox.

    This is only relevant for repeat signs.

  3. Click the desired bar line type.

    The dialog closes and the bar line type is changed.

  4. If you do not want to display bar lines at the beginning of the parts, open the Score Settings dialog on the Project–Notation Style subpage (Bar Lines category) and activate the “Hide First Bar line in Parts” option.

    The bar line types are part of the Project layer – any changes you make are reflected in all layouts.
