I have an old orchestral piece which I imported via xml. I’m slowly cleaning it up and adding/cutting etc. If you see the image below taken from the score I have a section where there is kind of six consecutive crotchet beats that don’t really line up the way I’d like them to in 4/4.
I’ve been using the system track, locking the following bar then activating the 4th ‘Insert Mode’ option to get the beats i need for a longer/shorter time signature as Dorico will input a new time signature but without ‘Insert Mode’ enabled it will not give you the beats required IIRC. Before I do any of this I add the previous time-signature that I want the music to return to then lock the system track. This works fine and is not a problem when I want a bar of extra or shorter time here and there. I’m just wondering if there is a way to make a selection (in this case the six crotchets) and then make an automatic bar of 6/4 which could just be kind of place in between and then return back to 4/4. I’m probably dreaming here but there’s things in the write and edit menu that I’m slowly discovering for all kinds of things. Thought I’d see if anyone has a way to do this? Hope it makes sense! Cheers Simon.
