bar lines
On a music sheet, I see three staffs (soprano, alto, baritone).
In the staffs I don't see measure bar lines. I only see these lines between the soprano bar and the alto bar and also between alto and baritone.
The duration of the measures (actually are that measure bars?) is not the same in the measures.
How do I create these bar lines?

Regards.

One way is to use grace notes:
