This has been an issue for years. Even though I have, in Document Options, always selected Default Style is Previous Measure's Right Barline, new measures do not use the dashed barline I've selected for all the prior measures. I always have to manually select all and then change the new barlines to Dashed. This is getting old-the amount of time I've probably spent over the many years fixing this is probably considerable. Can't there be a way to set a default barline style that carries through to new measures automatically? Thanks.
