In my current project, I have a single time signature (4/4) at the top. However, Dorico shows a “hidden” time signature, 4/4, in measure 2. I want to delete the redundant one especially because it screws up rest measure consolidation. Instead of some parts showing, for example, 8 bars of rest consolidated into one, they show a single bar rest (measure 1, and then a 7-bar rest for (2-8).
However, when I delete the “flag” for that hidden time signature, or make the time signature visible and delete the actual time signature, Dorico deletes it, then thinks for another few seconds, and puts it back. Every time.
If there is some hidden feature or parameter I am getting trapped on out of ignorance, I’d like to know. If this seems strange to you, as well, then I’m reporting unexpected behavior. Thanks.
