extend guitar barre line across soft line break?

• Sep 13, 2015 - 05:13

Is it possible to extend a guitar barre line (the palette option VII---| ) across measures to wrap around a soft line break in the score? I am running into a situation where I really need to keep a bunch of separate finger exercises on a single page apiece (all pieces in an album). I have just enough space for all the necessary measures on a single page. There is no wiggle room. Therefore, when a guitar barre line needs to extend across measures and the next measure wraps down onto a new staff line, I cannot create a line break prior to the barre so that the relevant measures are all on a single line. I don't have the space to do that. So I need the barre line to wrap around the soft line break into the measure on the next line.

How to do that? I can't seem to find a way.


I'm afraid I have not understood...
Try: select the starting measure with a click,
hold down Shift and click on the measure of destination;
Double-click VII --- |

Lines are extended using Shift+right arrow - see the Handbook under Lines. It works exactly the same whether this crosses a system breka or not. I'm guessing ytou are trying to simply drag, but that does not work as you expect. Dragging is for fine adjustments only; it does change the actual attachment point.
