Fortunately, it’s exceedingly rare that I need both dashed and invisible barlines, but it has happened on occasion, in which case I have to just insert a regular barline and delete it in AP. But I use this hack nearly daily. I confess I wish we had genuine hidden barlines, although I can imagine a few scenarios that might make the team reticent to implement them. If nothing else, they would likely be abused by people who don’t know about note spacing tools, for starters. But there are plenty of legitimate reasons for wanting them too. I still get stung by having split bars when it comes to note spacing… but I know this is on their radar.
Of course I agree it is a valid request, but in the meantime, this is a way to accomplish what you posted: an invisible barline followed by a repeat barline. Which, to my knowledge, was not possible before now. I needed this exact thing last week and had a heck of a time faking it. Now it seems to be much easier.
