Missing barline at start of staves MS3

• Dec 31, 2018 - 05:53

This is a problem I keep running into. Whenever I try to add a double barline at the start of a staff, the beginning barline for the uppermost staff disappears. This even occurs when adding double barlines to single-staff music.

1. Create score with multiple staves on MS3
2. Add a double barline to the starting barline of any staff
Result: The uppermost staff will completely lose the starting barline while lower staves will gain the double barline.

With single staff:
1. Create score with single staff on MS3
2. Check "Barline at start of single staff" in Style - Barlines
3. Add a double barline to the starting barline of any staff.
Result: The barline at start of that staff will be missing.

I believe the barline at the start of a system is always a single barline. It is dealt with separately from other barlines as it is system generated. Similar issue exists or existed with making such a barline (for more than one instrument) invisible

Interesting. End barline does not wothk there (not that it would make any sense, jus wondering why), just normal, dashed, dotted and double baline, none of the others, so there seems to be some special casing going on.
