I have seen this topic covered before but I want to clearly specify the issue I’m having. I’d like to make the last 2 bars of my lead sheet a Coda, so that I can easily write “to Coda, on cue.” I know that I could just call the last 2 bars rehearsal mark C and say “To C on cue,” for instance, but it would be nice to have it be a coda.
When I add a coda section, Dorico adds an unwanted bracket
When I delete that bracket in Engrave mode, the following 2 barlines no longer “join all staves” which I would like them to. As you can see, I have turned “Barline joins all staves” on, to no avail.
Interestingly, turning on “Barline joins all staves” in the final barline does work, but I should not have to manually do this.
Lastly, I wanted to make the barline preceding the Coda a double barline, and this was the result.

Please let me know if there is any way to work around these issues. It would be great to have the option of inserting a coda symbol without it affecting the properties of my bars.
Thank you for your help!
