Changing time signature from 3/4 to 4/4 loose all the layout break.

Thanks for your quick answer, but it wasn't like that in v1.3.
To my mind it's better to keep the layout (in my exemple I will keep the same), than to erase everything. Because, you can change it only if you want/need it, whereas in the new way of managing it it's always lost.

It wasn't like that in 1..3 because if you changed from 4/4 to 3/4, you it just deleted the last beat of every measure, keeping the same number of measures. So it completely destroyed your music, but sure, at least it kept the line breaks :-). So the 2.0 system is a *huge* improvement - changing time signature no longer destroys your music by deleting notes at the end of every measure (or adding rests when changing to longer time signature). But the price you pay is, the barlines are not in the same places any more, so there is no way to keep the breaks.

To my mind layout breaks are attached to bars beetwen mesures and as changing time signature just translate left or right these bars among the notes, it should keep the layout breaks (except at the end of the score if some layout breaks no longer exist).

In reply to by madsenfr

Changing time signature does *not* simply move barlines left or right - you end up with more or fewer of them. So in many cases it won't be possible to say which barline moved where. It makes more sense to say the break is attached to a specific note, because we can say with certainty where each note ends up.

Sounds good.
My remark was just about the surprise of loosing all breaks when changing time signature whereas deleting or inserting a stave doesn't for exemple.
But it's minor remark, I will let you choose what is the best way to do it if you decide to do it in future release.
Anyway, this version is great !
