Local Time Signatures
I am composing in 6/8 time, but I want one staff to be in 2/4 for a few bars. Following the Handbook directions, I press control (windows) and drag the 2/4 time signature to the measure of the staff I want to change. Despite the fact that there is no music written in the staff, I get an error message saying "Cannot change local time signature. Measure is not empty". Can anyone help me with this?
