When the time signature of the current selection is X,the Insert Bars tool on the panel doesn’t do anything. A possible bug?
It’s OK to add barlines into an X bar, and there might be a need for more musical room before or after an X bar. I realize Dorico won’t know how many beats to put in the bar, but there could be a default. If not a bug, it’s frustrating for it to just do nothing. A message, or a dialog of how much of the current duration to add would be good.
Also, once you’ve added barlines into an area of undefined meter, is there a way to increase the duration of an existing X bar? Note Insert mode just proceeds across the barline. I suppose I could just move the barline then.
This comes up while I am composing right into Dorico. The music needs much adjusting.
