I'm re-noting some hymn tunes so that I can see them better (500 done, 5,000? still to go)
One tune is attached as "Kedron" and it's laid out ok, but note the changes of Time Signatures. However, to balance the two lines I decided to split bar 4 before the last beat. I highlighted the soprano "B", clicked on "Edit" and then "split bar".
"Kedron 2" (also attached) is what I get.
I don't understand why MS has placed a Time Signature of 4:4 at the beginning of the split bar which is (and should remain) 3:4
The 4:4 Time Signature is from the original bar 5 and I see no reason why it should be removed just by splitting a previous bar.
Any suggestions what I've misunderstood or done incorrectly.
