Hiding bar numbers at rehearsal marks

Hi. Getting to grips with Dorico slowly - lots of “unlearning” to do, as well as learning new things. Loving the approach - just will take a while until I “think” in Dorico rather than “thinking” in Sibelius then translating that into Dorico!

When showing bar numbers every bar, with the “Hide bar numbers at rehearsal marks” option switched on, I’m still seeing a bar number at a rehearsal mark if that starts a new system. Is that the intended behaviour, and if so, how can it be over-ridden? I’ve tried selecting the errant bar number (just the number) and deleting it, but that doesn’t seem to work.

Thanks for any help in advance.

It is the intended behaviour as things stand; I believe the bar number would not appear if you had bar numbers set to appear at the start of every system, but if bar numbers are set to appear every bar, then the program won’t hide them when they coincide with a rehearsal mark at the start of a system. We should be able to address this in a future update.

Daniel, just to clarify: selecting in Layout options Bar Numbers>Show Bar Numbers>Every system and tick on “Hide bar numbers at rehearsal marks” also results in a double numbering in those instances where the layout places a rehearsal mark at the beginning of a system. I wonder if Dorico could allow another option: “Hide bar numbers at rehearsal marks at beginning of systems”, which would hide bar numbers in these instances, or simply have “Hide bar numbers at rehearsal marks” be the overriding effect no matter how the music gets casted off.

We thought it would be OK to show the bar number at the start of the system if it wouldn’t actually bump into the rehearsal mark, and indeed I think this is the right call if your rehearsal marks are not duplicating the bar number, but I can certainly understand that if you are using bar numbers as your rehearsal mark sequence type, you don’t want the bar number to be duplicated at the start of the system both as a bar number and as a rehearsal mark. We should be able to add an additional check for this situation in the next update.

An option to suppress bar numbers at any rehearsal mark would be good. I often have something like a large mark, a timecode box, a section title and cues - any tiny saving of space is worthwhile.

Dorico will already suppress bar numbers at rehearsal marks if you switch on the option found on the Bar Numbers page of Layout Options.
