I am a music theory instructor, and, as a result, I occasionally want to end exercises (flows) with double barlines rather than the default final. I find it cumbersome to go into the Notation options and change the default barline for every flow, and I used to enjoy simply pressing Shift+B, typing in “double,” and calling it a day. However, now I get this dialog box: “To add bars, first add a time signature. If you want to add more time but no time signature, instead enter a duration like +4q into the popover.”
Well, clearly, I don’t want to add bars, or else I’d do that. I just want to change the barline. And if I press Enter to dismiss the dialog box, the barline won’t change to what I want; I have to physically click the OK button (which disrupts my workflow).
Is there a way around this? Or is this another example of Dorico telling me how I should be writing my music?
