Alternating time signatures

• Dec 3, 2020 - 10:08

Does anyone know of a way to allow my time signatures to alternate from 6/4 to 4/4 every other bar (so opening in 6/4, then the second bar is in 4/4, and the third bar reverts to 6/4 ongoing)? When I've seen this done in sheet music the two signatures are simply side by side in the first bar, but I can't find a way of doing this. My music is looking really cluttered with a time signature inserted into every bar!


Note that you don't have to insert a new time signature every bar; but can change the actual duration of every other bar instead using the bar properties

The second time signature is entered using symbols (press z then search "time"). If you turn off auto placement for the symbols they work nicely though you need to save (and possibly reopen) the score to see the final results.

This is being improved. I think it'll be in 3.6.
