comment Need help with a measure within Mozart's 'Rondo alla Turca'
Good point; that's what I had tried to say in my final point. (I couldn't think of a better way to notate it. Also, this way it aligns with the two printed 32nd notes, which is probably desirable.)

comment Must “first-time bars” and “second-time bars” appear together?
You can, however, have the "first-time bar" be more than just the first time ("1–3."); the "second-time bar" will still be the last ("4.").
