This is a feature request to facilitate creating new time signatures. Currently in order to open the master palette you can use shortcut "Shift->T" or by "View"->"Master Palette"->"Time Signatures". But just wanted an easy way for when your hand is on your mouse hovering in the palette looking for the particular time sig, such that can click to open the dialog with your mouse in the area without having to switch hand to keyboard or mouse to the top menu.

I have created a PR implementing this basic shortcut behavior, including demo video: https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/pull/5169

Note, I have disabled dragging of this new time signature. And it is debatable whether X/X is the best way to represent this shortcut, but it seemed the best choice of symbols I could find from searching the list of symbols that started with "SymId::timeSig..."

I also want to note that ideally I'd like a way to be able to drop this X/X time signature onto the score for a measure where the user hasn't yet decided what the time signature for that measure will be, and then to also allow ability to directly change already-placed time signatures in-place, maybe by double-clicking their numerator/denominator and then typing in numbers for the new time sig... Maybe this X/X could function to do that later, in which case would need to enable dragging. But for now I'm just treating mouse pressing on it to act as a shortcut to Master Palette.

(Maybe a better name for it would be "undefined time sig" if the behavior in the above comment would be implemented...but for now I'm calling it "create custom time sig".)

It just occured to me that "Clefs" palette has a "???" entry for "Show more" which does exactly what my PR does. Maybe I should follow that example instead...

??? "Show More" to Time Signature has been added via https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/pull/5166 as part of #291292: Add 3/2 time signature to advanced workspace and master palette
Still open for doing the same thing to Key Signatures
