Exclude dashed barline from select parts


I have some rhythmically complicated parts and I want to have a dashed barline in the middle of my 4/4 bars to make it easier to read. However, some parts have just whole notes during these bars, and for them I don’t want the dashed barlines shown.

When I create the dashed barlines with an aggregate time signature there is no way to hide them in individual parts. I know it would be possible to do with local time signatures and barlines, but in a large score that would require a lot of manual adjustment, so is there another way?


I’m not sure that this is possible sorry.

Out of interest, what kind of solution would you be after that doesn’t involve manual adjustment?

Going local is the way, I’m sorry to say…
