Time signature hanging at the end of a system by itself?

Does anyone know how to fix this. I have time signature sometimes repeating itself. See attached image pls. The next bar is 4/4 but just before it (screenshot) it sometimes appears on its own.

Possibly misunderstoof your question, but cautionary time signatures are common (and are in most cases a good thing!). Been through the manual and it seems Dorico doesn’t have an in built way to do this without splitting into multiple flows.

Just found this thread from 2016 which has been commented on as recently as August 2019. Seems to cover this sort of issue:


The way around this is to add a coda (Shift-R, “coda”) and hide the coda mark. Also, set the coda indent to zero.

Thank you all. I thought this might have been a glitch of sorts. I wasn’t aware that cautionary time signature existed. It does make sense because it only happens if the last bar in the system has a different TS than the bar following it in the next system. Cheers.
