I’m writing out a song that has multiple verses with a refrain before verse 1 and between verses - a fairly standard church song format. I have a system break at the end of the refain for clarity in reading. The refrain is in 6/8 time, but verse 1 begins in 9/8; I end up with a 9/8 advisory time signature at the end of the refrain’s system, which is not correct for verses 2 and 3. If I try to hide the advisory time signture, it also hides the needed 9/8 time signture at the start of verse 1. Is there a way to hide or suppress the advisory time signature while still leaving the regular one intact?
I’ve also run into a similar problem with key signatures, where the refrain is in a different key than verse 1. So same question there, please.
