This may have been addressed in Dorico 4.x
Moving barlines graphically is a real pain. I may be working on a hymnal, and I am already trying out a first hymn and want to put in an A-men. However, when I add that measure to the stave, it throws the A-men to a new system.
When I move the new measure to the system above, it scrunches everything.
Using Alt+arrow and even Ctrl+Cmd+Alt+arrow to move notes and barlines is painfully slow and awkward.
Does 4.x present a viable solution for this? I’m hoping to put off getting 4.x for a bit. Thanks, all!
