jumping time signature

• Jun 25, 2020 - 02:58

i am trying to add a time signature to a measure where i added a key signature and tempo marking but when i went to add the time signature by dragging it from palette to that first measure, the time signature and the key signature and tempo marking all appeared in the next measure and a whole note rest remained in the first. i tried then deleting the first measure but it messed everything up. what to do? appreciate your help. philip


Any change you had that measure selected?
If you have a selection active, then the time signature will only apply to that selection. Thus the "old" time signature is restored at the end of the selection.

If this wasn't your intention, you can select the restored old time signature and delete it.
