The Dorico manual discusses how to hide a bar number in a desired measure but I couldn’'t find a discussion of how to show one. (To handle cases where a partial measure appears at the beginning of a system and one prefers to show a bar number on the first full measure rather than a bracketed bar number at the beginning of the system.)
According to a Dorico forum thread, one selects a note in the desired measure and goes to Edit>Notations>Bar Numbers >Add Bar Number Change and makes a bar number “change”. Being very literal-minded, I couldn’t see how to change a bar number that would remain the same. But I clicked OK anyway, and the bar number appeared like magic in the measure. Thank you Dorico!
Is there another way to accomplish this? A Show bar number option in the Time Signatures Properties panel that I am missing?
