Plz. describe how to insert a barre line in fret diagram.
I unsuccessfully tried it on MAC Yosemite with lots of combinations, e.g. shift left mouse click.
Fret diagram properties menu is successfully opend and number of strings is 4 in my case


Ok, so:

1) Drag and drop on the score the fretboard diagram from Symbols palette

2) Click right on the diagram -> Diagram Properties fretboard

3) For example, to get an F, first set up this configuration (you may see the number 6 for strings in the spinbox at the bottom of this window)

4) Press the Shift key, and then click on the first fret of the 6th string, like this:


First result:
Final result on the score for the F chord:

You can change the width of the barré line at your convenience by going to Style -> General -> Chords symbols -> Barré line width

Note that the principle is the same if you want a four strings barré (or other). In this case of A7 chord: Shift, and then click on the fourth string, second fret:

Sorry, I'll decline. I have little taste for this kind of help, and I do not understand terms as "Markdown syntax" and "Markdown extra" e.g.
I'm more useful, and I prefer very clearly to spend my free time by testing the Nigthlies, for improving them and making them stronger by the day :)
