(What is the plural? Not anacrusises; perhaps anacruses? - I don't know Greek.)

Anyway, to the point:
1) How do you make the next section start with an anacrusis? I usually end up with filling a bar with an unusual number of rests.
2) I don't seem to be able to use the function that makes a linebreak every 4 (or other number bars) because the program apparently counts the anacrusis as the first bar. I'm only making these breaks for aesthetic reasons, anyway, so the music is evenly spread out and easy to read and a short bar usually fits in.
Suggestions, please.


If your purpose is to end one section with 3 beats and start the second with 1 beat (4/4 time) separated by thin double barlines, select beat 4 and use Tools->Measures->Split measure... and insert the double barline.

The Add/Remove System Breaks facility operates on the selection. So either select the anacrusis or not depending on whether you want to count it or not.
