Gap before barline


I’d like to make this in Dorico, any idea how to add gaps before barlines? Thanks

(The above example is done in Sibelius 2021)

Use codas (and hide the coda marking). There’s a setting in Engraving options to set the gap before coda. I don’t think you can draw that slur between codas but Engrave mode should help :wink:


I forgot your solution Marc, but just discovered this crazy solution haha!! Thanks a lot. Actually I’ll need your tip for my jazz theory lessons. Tu m’as sauvé.

Good solution. Tried this out, and you can add slurs between codas.
