The little red arrow pointing downwards, at the top of the staff
area, change the bar left and right margin. Notes, rests and other
objects, are displayed in the area between the two handles.
Changing bar size
The vertical blue arrow change the total bar size.
you wish to apply the a change to several bars at the same time, select
these bars and apply change to any bar in the selection range. This
change will then be applied to all the selected bars.
