numbers for bars containing cautionary time signatures

Postby Florio60 » Sun Nov 20, 2016 2:42 pm

In order to insert some cautionary time signatures in a piece, I have had to insert extra bars and then hide the bar lines. The problem is that now these bars are included in the total bar number count, and I cannot exclude them, even using the Measure Attribute menu and asking that these bars are not included in the measure numbering. Is there another way around this?

I'm curious as to why you had to do that. Cautionary time signatures should not require any special treatment.

Can you post a document? To post a .mus file here, it must be compressed (zipped) and cannot exceed 100 kb in size.

Thanks for your reply, miker.

The situation is a slightly more complicated; I had to insert extra bars in order to place square brackets around the time signatures (see post viewtopic.php?f=5&t=13376&p=40738&hilit=Florio#p40738). In any case, I have now managed NOT to have those extra bars in the measure count.
