requesting advice/guidance with tricky time signature issue
At measure 29 of the attached mscz, the score shifts from Common time to "3/2" and "(18/8)". Please see the attached PNGs of the original from IMSLP.
Reviewing the score, the composer's obvious intent is that the string section is in 18/8, while everything else is in 3/2.
In MS 3.2.3, I applied 3/2 as the primary time signature, and 18/8 as the local time signature for the string section. So far, so good.
To get the graphics to look like the PNGs for the non-strings, I went to Master Palette/Symbols/Time Signatures and inserted the symbols to the right of the 3/2 signature to get the desired effect. A bit clumsy, but it works. Perfectly acceptable given how infrequently one would expect to do this.
For the string section, I made the as-displayed 18/8 time signature invisible, and again recreated the 3/2 + 18/8 time signature using the Master Palette symbols. Again, clumsy but it works. This completes the recreation of the "p200 top" PNG.
I'm now at the part that baffles me. If you look at the PNG "p199 bottom", you'll see that the courtesy time signature has the complete 3/2 + 18/8 notation. I'm at a loss to replicate this in MuseScore. Any ideas are welcome.
Even with this issue, I'm impressed that MS has the ability to do what I've done so far!
