Title Time Sig. Disappears Changing time signature and replacing the only instrument in score causes time signature to disappear

I could reproduce:

1. Create score.
2. Drag another time signature onto the first bar.
3. 'Instruments'.
4. Remove instrument.
5. Add instrument.
6. OK.

Result: Time signature disappears.

Using MuseScore 1.1 and 2.0 Nightly Build (4959) - Mac 10.6.8.

This is also a problem in current trunk (r4988). A possible fix could be to disallow the deletion if the very last instrument. Why would you want to do so?

I don't think you should disallow the deletion of the very last instrument (should you want an empty score, for template reasons, etc) - I think the fix should simply be having the default time signature (and whatever else?) given to the score perhaps.

I'm not sure I understand your question. I wanted to change the single voice (piano, grand staff) in the score to "Voice".

I added voice, deleted piano and that was the result.
