In Dorico Pro 18.104.22.1682, I want to annihilate the last 62 measures of my flow, so that they don’t exist anymore.
It’s not intuitive, so I find the directions for deleting multiple bars here: Deleting bars/beats
Two things don’t work as expected:
- Shift-B does not open the Bars Popover, as the directions promise. (So I open it with the mouse.)
- The data field for entering the number of bars will not accept the - (minus sign) as the directions promise—either from my regular keyboard or the numbers pad.
- Further, there’s no wording in the Bars Popover about deleting/removing anything, but only about adding/creating things. This seems like such a no-brainer feature to have if the popover is supposed to allow deletion.
So I have no way to delete multiple bars without the painstaking process of deleting them one at a time, which thought makes me very sad.
Is this a recent bug? I’m pretty sure I have the latest version, as the last update was in 2020.
