Hi, I’m sure this is explained somewhere, but I can’t find it!
I’m trying to add dotted barlines, that have no meter meaning. They should only be ‘courtely’ barlines, showing how a measure is divided internally.
If I add a barline by typing Shift-B, and then ‘:’, I get the dotted barline I want, but then I see the internal meter is recalculated.
For example, if I have a measure in 7/4 divided as ‘[2+2+3]’, the first minim is now shown as two tied crotchets.
I can solve this issue either by entering an invisible meter change at the courtesy barline (Shift-M, and then ‘2/4’), or force durations.
At the same time, the courtesy barline breaks the accidentals rules, and make an altered note non longer valid after the courtesy barline:
Can this type of barline be changed into something exclusively graphical, with not musical meaning?
