I have been working these days on the quintet in Bizet’s Carmen (n°15) and came across many difficult stuff, and found Dorico (as usual) did a wonderful job. Apart from my questions about hyphenated crescendi and diminuendi (I already created another thread about that), I came across a real problem I could not solve. It’s a piece of music with synchronized different meters (6/16 at the piano, 2/8 at some singers staves) that change during the piece. Fortunately, I learned Claude Lapalme’s workaround (really brilliant) using anachrousis at the meter change and then back to the original hidden meter and hidden tuplets all the way.
As you can see on the picture, I have a system where three systems are empty (of music), but there is this mess with hidden meterings. Could it be made possible that those staves were hidden automatically, even with those meter changes? The only solution I see here would be to split flows, and I do not like this solution.
Thanks for considering this — or build a “Dorico way” to synchronize different meters
