Hi Aaron thank you for that help. I don't like to use indepedant meters
however since this section I believe should be cadenza for easy input.
However, I add spacer rests like you said but it makes everything way wrong
too many repeats and breaks everything. I don't see what you mean to add.
Can you give one example of a pairing of spacer and r1* to move one repeat
barline successfully? Many thanks. My error image.  error.png
