Floating Bar Repeat symbol

Is it possible to have a bar repeat symbol floating above the staff? I’m working on a lead sheet and would use floating bar repeat signs to indicate to repeat chord symbols from previous bar. In Sibelius I could do this with the Z shortcut for symbols.
Brand new to Dorico and loving it. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum, Rob.

Definitely. You can create a custom playing technique and position it anywhere you want.

You’ll want to select “Glyph” and find the “Bar repeats” category from the dropdown. And you can use any popover text to trigger the playing technique; I assigned it to “barrepeat.”


Thanks for quick reply, but I’m not finding the Bar Repeats category yet.

Wait think I’ve got it. Watched more of video. Sorry I’m rushing :slight_smile:

Got it. Beautiful!
