Playing technique (barré) above staff not below

I’m trying to add barré indications to a classical guitar piece. Below, when I add it to the half notes in the upper voice, it adds only the “II 5”, without the line, which I need to make it clear the barré continues with the lower voice is :
But when I add

I found a few different methods:

  1. Create the PT in the down-stem voice, then
    Edit > Notations > Voices > Change Voice > Up-stem Voice 1
  2. Create the PT longer than the desired length, and shorten it with Shift-Alt-left arrow (requires more notes already entered)
  3. Temporarily change the Voice 1 chord to a quarter and repeat it with R. Create the PT over both notes, then select the first chord and change it back to a half.
