Good evening, I have a question, I would like to close off the bars at the end, when using several instruments. The beginning they are all connected, but at the end it is left open.
What to do.

Thanks fr your time and efforts.



In order for us to understand what you mean, we would need you to attach your score. Normally in standardusic notatiom the left side of the page has a barlines connecting all staves of a system. After that it is up to you to decide which staves you want connected, as described in the Handbook under "Barlines" (eg, double click and drag)

Thanks a lot Marc,
As you will see in the enclosed file, I put in a piano and 2 voices. The piano parts are connected on all the bars and at the end and the voice bars are open on the righthand side and also the two different voices are not connected.
I tried your suggestion and it worked, however it also connected all the other measures.

So what I would like to do, is connect only the last measure. Would this be possible?

It's possible to override the global action of the barline (also several other actions, like key and time signatures) by holding Ctrl while making the change. But note, connecting the right barlines is non-standard notation, so you shouldn't be going out of way to violate this standard without good reason.
