(4) over bar repeat regions and synamic barline smash

Puzzled by this
What’s the (4) doing there? I might think it was to show the number of bars (which is 5 in the top line), or … don’t know, time signature or something?

Also that ppppp is running into the barline, anything that can be done about that?

For the (4), see bar repeat counts.

For preventing the pppp colliding with the barline, see erasing backgrounds of dynamics. The example of avoiding barlines is given at the start :slight_smile:

RTFM :smiley:
