Hi everyone.

I've been trying for some time to put in a score a time signature like the one in the image.

I didn't manage to do that. Is that possible, to do that with finale?

With the “full Finale” it goes like this:

In the dialog box Time Signature, click the button “Composite…”.

In the dialog box Composite Time Signature, enter
2+3 *)
over
4

*) That’s right, no kidding:
three characters in the same field.

You have posted your question in the NotePad forum.
Unfortunately you can not access Composite Time Signature from NotePad.

Somewhat related...is it possible to change time signatures within a score in Notepad?

No. In NotePad, you can only have one time signature (or key signature.)

NotePad is so ridiculously cheap that it is not much better than a toy. From the questions you are asking it sounds as if you need a professional package. If you're a student, then buy Finale now while you can get the educational discount. If you are serious about producing music, then don't waste your money on the other packages from MakeMusic--you'll just wind up frustrated.

thanks so much...I figured as much. I used to have Finale 95 on an older computer that died and found that to have unbelievable versatility...I assume the latest full versions of Finale are only that much more advanced.

There have been enormous changes since Finale 1995, probably so many that you'll find it unrecognisable. Plan to spend a lot of time with the tutorials when you get Finale 25. It is still a very flexible and powerful tool.

If you still have the box from your Finale 1995 then you should have a serial number, which means you would be eligible for a discounted price on the upgrade to Finale 25. I'm not sure it's going to be a big discount however since your version is so old.
