Bar Line Properties
Bar line properties include:
StyleThis designates what kind of bar line will appear in the staff.
Force System Break (Top Staff Only)When selected for a bar line that appears in the top staff of a system, this option will force a new system to be started, starting with the next measure.
Note: This option only has an effect when used with bar lines in the top most staff of the system. It is ignored when it appears on bar lines in lower staves.
Exclude From Bar CountThis option can be used to prevent a bar line from adding to the running measure count.
Repeat Count (local repeats)When the bar line style is a Local Repeat Close item, you must also set the repeat count for the local repeat using this box. This is the number of times that the music will repeat between the open and close repeat bar lines.
