I'm currently using MuseScore 3.2.3.7635 (latest version).

If you are entering chords into your score and the cursor is hovering over the score (ready to input a chord name), any other action you take, like dragging in bar lines or repeats or expressions will automatically revert when you click on the score and exit "chord entering mode". I've attached a video.

The work around for this is to exit "chord entering mode" before adding barlines, repeats, etc but I think this is something you should address in the next build. Thanks!

Indeed it's not just the Inspector as we have been assuming, so disabling the Inspector isn't the solution I had thought it might be. We could disable more operations, but maybe we really need to ask how this is happening. I wonder if it is due to this change: https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/commit/e5d8d86d7d4d0d49ead7e8dbe…? Either that or the change that produced the code this is replacing.

Not the case in 2.3.2 at least (don't have a 3,0 version to check, above mentioned change was in 3.1), so certainly a regression
Workaround is of course to first leave text edit mode
