Can't add barre marks in standard notation.

As a guitarist, I need to add barre marks such as " 1/2BII................................ " to sections of a score.

I have been advised by PreSonus technical support that this is only possible using a text box.

This kind of works except that the size of the text box is fixed so, if I go into Score Options and reset the number of bars/measures per system (thereby making each bar/measure longer or shorter), then the text box covers an inaccurate section of the score.

A proper tool is required for this which is linked to measure width if changed.

Ideally, it should also affect TAB (if used) so that " BVII............ ", for example, forces notes at frets 7 - 10 in the TAB.

This is such a standard feature of traditional notion for classical guitar that I am amazed it is not already implemented. It would be unacceptable, say, for a guitar teacher to provide standard notation to a student WITHOUT these markings.

Urgent... please.
