Hi Robert!

This is indeed a tricky situation. We actually don't need to braille the horizontal lines in either case, as the figures connected by the lines are associated with different notes. They aren't lines of continuation (for which we use the dot 1s) nor are the figures one either side of the line associated with the same note (for which we would use the hyphen).

In both examples, the print horizontal line is just showing that the 4 resolves down to the sharp 3rd. It's not a line of continuation. So remove the two dot 1s and just keep the second numeric indicator.

In the second example - assuming it's the "answer" to the first one - the same holds. The horizontal line just shows the resolution. Remove the hyphen and just use a second numeric indicator and place the 3 directly below the 2nd oct E.
