Feature request: please allow us to place bar repeat regions above the staff and to tweak the position in Engrave mode.
These examples are from a popular series of jazz fake books (the ones that inspired the Petaluma font).
I’d like to do this, except that in my case the bars are empty.
It doesn’t seem possible currently. I tried changing the Y offset of a bar repeat in Engrave mode, but it had no effect.
EDIT: Removed work-around originally posted. See below for a better one.
