Hi. I’m not sure how to explain clearly my question, but I’ll try my best:
I’m writing a score that halfway through has a meter change. This meter change is different for some instruments (kind of polymetric, but not quite); while the violin 1 and viola play at 10/8+3/4, the violin 2 and cello play at 12/8+2/4. This means barlines will only align every two bars; so, obviously, the barlines stop being connected (as they were at the beginning). Until here, everything is fine. Later on, they all meet at a new 4/4 meter change which applies to everyone. The issue here is that barlines remain separated. Oddly, some bars later (after yet another meter change), barlines resume being connected with no apparent reason. (See attachments for reference)
What am I missing here?
