What it does

The Barlines options provide global settings that allow you to tailor barlines to a consistent appearance and placement in your score, without having to edit each barline individually. You can fine-tune the appearance of barlines by separately specifying the thicknesses of the thin and heavy lines, by setting line spacings for thin, thick and final barlines, and by defining the dash length and dash spacing for dashed barlines. You can also direct Finale to display or hide left barlines on single and multiple staves, and place final barlines through all staves at the end of each system or at the end of the piece.
