Barlines

Bar beginning barlines:

Piece start barline  shows the first bar to be played. Usually, only one piece start barline can be included in a single score. If several of them are inserted, only the first one is taken into account.

Repeat start barline  shows that the following bars have to be repeated several times. Repeat number is specified by the matching repeat end barline.

Other barlines at the beginning of  a bar (double, dotted, bold or invisible barline) have no effect on how the piece is played.

For each of these barlines at the beginning of a bar, you can open the editing window (double-click on barline with "lasso" tool) to select:

  • Bar number this barline is inserted in
  • Text to be displayed on score above the barline
  • Location of this barline:
    • Bar start: barline is displayed at the very beginning of the bar
    • After clef: barline is displayed after the clef, time or key signature
    • After margin: barline is displayed at the first location usually occupied by the notes in this bar

Bar end barlines:

Piece end barline  tells the performer to stop playing when this symbol is reached.
In the editing window (double-click on barline with "lasso" tool) you can only select:

  • Bar number this barline is inserted in
  • Text to be displayed on score above the barline
 Repeat end barline  tells the performer that bars between the matching repeat start barline and this symbol have to be repeated several times.
In the editing window (double-click on barline with "lasso" tool) you can select: 
  • Bar number this barline is inserted in
  • Text to be displayed on score above the barline
  • If you write $P in the text, this keyword will be replaced on score by the number of repeats to be performed.
  • A frame under the text input area previews the text that will be displayed on the score
  • Number of repeats to be performed (default: 2).
