After fruitlessly spending a lot of time trying to find a way to make bar numbers appear in more than one position per system, I discovered the following paragraph in the online documentation.
“Bar numbers can only be shown at one position per system. You cannot show bar numbers above/below multiple staves in a single system.”
As many of my scores require tabloid size paper for printing out and have more than 25 starves per system, I think it would be very helpful if I could have the bar number at the start of each system appear in more positions than just above the top stave. Just below the bottom stave would be very helpful, to name one possibility. What I would REALLY like is to have them appear in the same positions as Tempo markings and other system text items.
