This has been a feature request of mine ever since I started using Dorico. 99.99% of the time I do not want to split bars. It’s great that Dorico can do it, and when I need that capability I definitely want it available, but it would be great to have a setting to disable this by default. Casting off would be a lot faster if I could just click anywhere in the bar rather than have to click the barline or first beat. It would also eliminate a proofreading step as I wouldn’t have to scan the systems for a measure number in brackets like I do now just in case I mis-clicked. Casting off is one of the few areas where Dorico is substantially slower than Finale, so the ability to disable split bars would help speed this up a bit.
