Alternating time signatures

Hi, everyone! :slight_smile:

My client has composed his piece in what is a “de facto” 7/4 time but wants it written as alternating 4/4 and 3/4 bars.
Is there a better way of inputting this than to change each of those onehundredsomething measures one by one…?

Thanks, Estigy

See here:

Enter 4/4 + 3/4 in the popover (note the spaces around the + sign), that should give the desired result.

Or did you want to show 4/4 and 3/4 at the start of each single bar? Hopefully not, this shouldn’t be necessary…

Yes, that’s exactly what I’m talking about.
I somewhat understand the client’s whish - it’s a jazzy piece where some rhythms are much easier to read knowing the exact time signature in each bar.

Oh, I found a solution!
Enter one 4/4 and one 3/4, then mark both time signatures via Ctrl+Click, and then Alt+Click to paste them into the following bars.
Works like a charm :slight_smile:

I had never needed to copy time signatures like that before, but it works! :slight_smile:
