Single staff dotted barline

• Apr 11, 2021 - 21:01

Not sure if this is the place to ask but if it is how do I change a barline to dotted or dashed for a single staff instead of a whole system? I usually add dotted barline symbols and line them up vertically but that looks a bit off and takes too much time, I also tried using image capture but then the barline is blurry.

If you select the barline on the top stave and hold CTRL while clicking on the dotted barline in the pallet it will apply to that upper barline. Alternatively if you prefer drag and drop, hold CTRL while dragging and dropping.

More generally, holding CTRL while adding an element often makes it apply to the selected stave rather than all staves - as for example when adding a local key signature or time signature.
