I am working on a project where 90% of the piece is in 3/8. However, at certain points in the score some of the instruments switch to 2/8 (I suppose it is easier to read than a continual stream of duplets).
I’ve read the Scoring Notes post on making tuplets hiding the tuplet marker. However, I can’t figure out how to get Dorico to create a time signature that is for display only.
It’s in the third bar. The Clarinets and horns switch to 2/8 while the bassoons remain in 3/8.
The attempts I’ve made so far simply realign the barlines. (Shift–M, 2/8, Alt+Enter)
I had considered switching all of the instruments to 2/8, hiding the new time signature for the bassoons and entering that staff as hidden triplets but I was hoping to find a way to do it while keeping the score in 3/8. This is an isolated section that will change back to the original 3/8.
Thanks for any advice you can give.
