Offset settings of barlines are not saved

First reported here:

1) "My First Score"
2) Select the first barline
3) In Inspector: change horizontal offset value, eg 5.00 sp. (and 2.00 sp for vertical offset)
4) Save- Reload

Result: these settings are gone, returned to 0.00 sp.


This is also true of brackets. I encountered this when transcribing the attached PDF into MuseScore. I also attached the mscz file. The bracket should be as shown on page 4 of the PDF file. (There are other occurrences on pages 7 and 9.)

Changing the bracket position via any method, saving, then reloading - the changed position is lost.

Confirmed. But while we definitely do support modification of barline properties - length, visibility, style etc are all saved - I'm not sure we actually support this for brackets. So the bug could be that it appears to work in the first place.

However, I do not think what is done in that original sheet music is really standard or correct. The system bracket should appear the left edge of the system, regardless of whether there are rests for the first few bars or not.
