Put a bar up to the line above.

• Mar 3, 2013 - 17:24

This (attached) is four systems long and I'd like two bars on each system. Somehow line two has one bar and line four three bars. How do I get all the bars from line three to shift up a bit, if you know what I mean. Can you do a 'reverse' line break?

Just delete the line break(s) and re-enter where you want them.

For a longer piece you'd use the "Break Every X Measures" Plugin. Right-click on a Line Break, Select All Similar Elements and press [Del]. Then click on the second measure (since you have a pick-up in the first measure) and press [Ctrl][Shift][End] then run the Plugin and choose to break every 2 measures.

Thank you, I deleted the line break and that was fine. I'd already tried the setting the number of bars per system but it didn't work.
