Note sure if this is an anomaly, a bug; or something I don’t understand.
Any explanation gratefully received, please .
I changed the Time Signature from 4/4 to 5/4 at the beginning of a score (aded/inserted a new bar and applied 5/4.)
Dorico Pro 2 barred it as having a total of four (crotchet/quarter) beats. See grab ‘FiveFourStart’.
But if I do the same thing towards the end of the same score - where there are, I suspect crucially, no notes following - it correctly adds five (crotchet/quarter) beats. See grab ‘FiveFourEnd’.
Should I assume that inserting a bar (at the beginning) with SHIFT-B > (+)1 and SHIFT-M > 5/4 is not supposed to work, please?
