Delete bar in the middle of a flow

Hello!

Something went wrong when I wanted to change time signature here and I now have an empty bar. How to delete this bar without moving the music that comes after? I want to delete the selected bar that is only one beat long.

Thanks!

Never mind! I solved it, somehow!:slight_smile:

Glad you solved it - in this case, I would have recommended re-inputting the cutc time signature at the start of bar 74, then selecting the rest immediately before (in the 1-beat odd bar), pressing Shift-B, entering β€œ-1” and pressing Return.

Dorico thinks in rhythmic positions, so if you deleted the odd bar, subsequent music would follow whatever the previous time signature was. So if you input the time signature again where you want it, that β€œfixes” that in place and changes you make preceding that have an β€œend” point (at least as far as bars/barlines are concerned).

Thank you Lillie!

Even though I manage to solve it, I am happy to hear your explanation of how this works in Dorico.

Thanks!
