Add or change a new time signature
Add a new time signature
You can add a new time signature by going to the “Measure” toolbar, clicking on the Time Signature tool and choosing the new one. If there is no range selection, the new time signature will be applied until the next time or the end of the score. If you only want to change the time on specific measures, make a range selection of the measures before choosing the new time signature.
To set a time signature that is not listed in the suggestions, click on Customize. Suggestions include the most used time signatures and the one you recently used.
Change an existing time signature
You can change an existing time signature by clicking on the time signature and choosing the new one or using the tool available in the “Measure” toolbar.

For example, a 4/4 measure with a 1/4 pickup (real duration of the measure):
If you want to shift the measures numbers to skip the anacrusis, you can do that in the layout settings.
