a cross, or it is colored, or it has any other kind of attribute I

How to select several bars for all
- You try to click on the second part of a tied note. Even if
displayed as two distinct notes, such a pattern only produce one
sound, and is considered as a single note by the software. Click
the first note of the group.
- You try to click on a break symbol (numbered endings, repeat
end barline). Click a little bit to the right of the barline to
edit all the break symbols at this position.
- You inserted objects outside the staff area. Select them
through "Edit>Select>[object type]" and move them all at the
same time on score.
- Your display scale is too small, and the accuracy not
sufficient. Increase the display scale ("Windows>Scale" or
"magnifying glass" tool
Click the ruler (gray line at the top of the document window, in
scroll mode, where bar number are displayed) and move the mouse
over the ruler while mouse button is down

fermata mark above the barline instead of above a note. It means he
needs the two sections of the piece to be separated. How to notate

- Set its text style to "SToccata", size 80
- Enter the "U" character
Ensure the edit mode in the "edit tools" palette is the pencil.
