Missing a barline

Hi, a song I’m working on is missing a barline and I don’t know how that happened. Here’s the same bar from 2 parts. Any ideas how to fix this? The song is in 4/4.

Turn on signposts. What probably happened is you deleted the barline accidentally, which creates hidden time signatures. Deleting those signposts should get the barlines back to normal.

Thank you, Mark - that did it! I deleted the hidden signpost and all is well with both parts now. For beginners like me, View/Signposts, uncheck Hide Signposts, and then delete the red signpost you see above the bar(s) in question - which in my case showed something like 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4, I forget exactly.
