Possible bug regarding aggregate time signatures

Hi all,

I’m working on the latest version of Dorico 4 (Version and I seem to have a problem with aggregate time signatures. I want to write a measure of 5/4, but with the dotted bar lines either after the third or the second beat. Well, I enter 3/4|2/4 in the Meter popover, and I get the right time signature 3/4+2/4, but I don’t get the dotted bar line. Is this a known bug? or am I doing something wrong? Check out the attached screenshot. Thanks in advance for your help!!

You’ll see the dashed barline only in bars that have notes, but you should find it works OK. I’ve just tried it here and it works with no problems.

Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean when you say “You’ll see the dashed barline only in bars that have notes.” I’m attaching the Dorico file in case you want to see it for yourself. I’m not seeing any lines, dashed or otherwise. The problematic passage is in Flow 3, near the end of the written music. Thanks for your help and your response!

Never mind. I figured it out! I had changed the dash length to zero in a different project and made it the default by accident. I see the dashes now. Thanks for taking the time to look at this
