Measure subdivisions

Postby desideroali » Fri Jan 15, 2016 5:06 am


In our music scores, there are some pieces with long time signatures such as 28/4, 88/4, etc

We would like to divide the measures of these pieces into 4/4 submeasures with dashed bar lines. Currently, we are planning to do this by manually changing the bar-line attribute. Is there any element or attribute that you suggest for this situation?

Thanks in advance,

Hello Burak,

You can use a barline element with a location attribute of "middle" in MusicXML 3.0. I am not sure how many applications support that though. This is something we might add in future versions of our Finale MusicXML support. The bar-style child element of the barline should indeed be dashed.
