Local time signature not working
Curious and curiouser...
I have successfully used the local time signature feature of MS many times in the past, but suddenly it appears to have stopped working. I have even uninstalled MS and re-installed from a fresh download in case it was something with my particular installation but it appears not. I am using MS2.0.2 and Windows 8
See screenshot 1
I want to set the time signature in the lowest stave to 12/8. When I ctrl-drag the 12/8 time signature onto the bottom stave, I get the "bar not empty" message, but I have also in the past had the situation where it has changed all the staves to 12/8.
I seem to recall a similar problem in the past but think I stumbled on a solution which required the top 3 staves to have some notes in them. Accordingly I entered some notes into the top 3 staves. However, it is still not working. I still get the "bar not empty" message. I even tried removing (ctrl-del) all of the subsequent extra bars, See screenshot 2..
I still get the "bar not empty" message when I try once again to change the lowest stave to 12/8, even though the one and only additional bar clearly *is* empty. I have even tried selecting it and doing a "ctrl-X" just to make sure it is empty
At the moment I am stuck! Any advice and help will be gratefully received.
