When meter is set, why Bars can't be added?


Hello,
It doesn’t make a lot of sense when meter is set, when adding bar not allowed. It ask for adding more notes. After that, rebar is not happening. It looks like this is a bug. It is counter-productive to continue accepting this is how Dorico 5 should work.

It looks like you have done something inadvertently with bar 1 (count the number of beats in it).

First, turn on Signposts to see if anything is hidden. Delete any hidden time signatures.

You may need to delete the 4/4 time signature and re-add it.

You posted about the same sort of issue yesterday. I would advise you to go through the First Steps guide. Dorico is not misbehaving here, you just need to understand how to use it properly.

After correct the count in first bar, delete the red X. I wasn’t sure Delete command or cut X , but cut X works. Rebar also works.

Stop adding barlines from the side-panel.

You also don’t need to remove the lower staff, if you don’t want to show it (specifically, look at the option in step 5 here)
