Hiding clef and key signature but retaining initial barline

• May 22, 2022 - 16:54

I'm creating jazz lead sheets and I would like the initial barline to appear on each stave, but when I eliminate the clef and key signature (except on first stave of course), the barline disappears. How can I get it back?


How are you eliminating the clef & key? It's not really recommended - we don't have to do charts by hand anymore so the original reasons for skipping these elements (which was to make it easier for students to figure out note spacing by drawing in barlines first then adding notes) no longer exists. But if you do choose to emulate that look, best way is via the options in Format / Style / Page. Barlines should remain. If you are finding they don't please attach your score so we can understand and assist better.
