Changing Time Signatures: dialogues and menu options logically incorrect in multiple ways
The following prevents changing to an exotic time signature after a score has been created. It does not interfere with common time signatures however it is possible to create a time signature that does not reflect the beats per measure.
- Right-click time signature.
- Select time signature properties.
- change the value in appearance>text
Notice the appearance changed but not the beats per measure.
It should work in one of two ways:
> you can't change the text of the time signature
> or you can change the text of the time signature and the beats per measure change with it
Why is this a bug: it's possible to create a key signature that doesn't match the number of beats per measure.
I was attempting to alternate between 8/4 and 8/8 time and could not find the same dialog box that one gets when starting a new score (New Score Wizard>last set-up screen>enter time signature).
Right-clicking on the time signature and selecting Edit Element has no effect. It should either:
> Say this option does not pertain to this element
> Permit some kind of editing (I think it should allow changing of the time signature)
A time signature can be copied but not pasted. The options are available but nothing happens. I would expect either:
> The option is not available
> The key signature is inserted into the score (I would like this best)
