I request that time signatures added only to change the subdivision for beaming purposes should automatically be hidden.
- Meter begins in bar 1 as [3+4]/8 and bar 2 needs to subdivide as [4+3]/8
In Dorico [3+4]/8 and [4+3]/8 both correctly appear as 7/8, but it makes no sense to show the meter twice. When the [4+3]/8 time signature is added in the second bar, it should auto-hide. The user should not have to go to the properties pane, turn on and check the Hide time signature option.
This auto-hiding logic should also be applied to imported MusicXML documents, please (although I would understand if you say no to that).
My question about specifying metric subdivisions and hiding time signatures is here:
[Yes, the meters could be shown as 3+4/8 and 4+3/8 instead of 7/8, but when that’s not what you want, then the most logical thing for the software to do is hide the visually equivalent time signatures automatically.]
