Thanks for the questions. I’ll try and answer them here:
What is the symbol that you are used to seeing?
For my needs, the | looking one would be best. I would put ||: and then four measures and then | I could then put text “x8” to say doing it 8 times.
By “Hiding” the extra bars, do you mean that those bars are present but empty?
No. They are present and full, but I hid them in notation with the “H”.
There are of course Repeat Start and End Barlines (just double-click on the barline, to choose the options), available with or without brackets. But these are purely graphical…
This may do what I need-I knew I had seen them before but I didn’t see them in the symbol choices and couldn’t figure out where they were…
This is purly for Notation purposes-I don’t want to use arrange in the main project for this, so I think your mention of the repeat bars will work. Thanks!
