I’m trying to make my score more readable by joining barlines between certain staves, but I’ve noticed that Dorico never joins the barlines between staves where condensing is applied:
I have created a custom condensing group for Trumpet and Alto Sax, and the Tenor Saxes form a group as well. So when they are both condensed I have two staves for these four instruments. I’d like to connect the barlines between these two staves.
- Creating a single group for these four players in Setup mode:
- Enabling the “Allow barlines to join staves” option in Engraving options:
- Adding a custom “Bracket and Barline Change” in Engrave mode
None of these have any effect.
If I turn off condensing, then by default the three Sax staves have joined barlines and using a custom “Bracket and Barline Change” in Engrave mode I can join those with of Trumpet stave as well:
Is there any way to make this work for condensed staves?
