Aggregate time signature appearance

Is there some way to show
as a time signature, but have dashed barlines as 1+1+1+1+1+1/2?

I’m not familiar with aggregate time signatures but from reading the manual for 5 minutes it doesn’t look like it.

I guess one would also have to ask: is it really 2/4 3/4 1/8 if you have barline between every crotchet?

As I said, I’m by no means an expert on this and so I may sound nuts (Well… more nuts).

You might be able to use hidden time signatures somehow e.g. figure out a way to get bar 1 sorted and then enter the aggregate signature as 1/4 1/4 1/4… etc and hide it?

Yes, that is a way,

using the time signature popover (shift + M)

  1. At the first bar enter

  2. At the second bar enter
    and use the properties panel to hide this time signature.

Go back to the first bar and use the bar/barline popover to enter the dashed barlines where needed.

After entering the dashed barlines in the first bar, a bar number change will be needed.
