I am often composing chant or other mixed meter pieces, and would love to have an option to "Change time signature in this measure to match notes entered" when the error "Too many beats" pops up. Also, put an option in the Time Signature tool to "Change time signature to match notes in measure," allowing the option to apply it to an entire piece or just selected measures.

Instead I have to (especially with multiple layers in one staff) click "OK" several times while entering and editing each layer in one measure, and also go back and change the time signature manually. This can happen multiple times in a given piece. Or I have to set the time signature to an absurdly high number of beats per measure, then go back and change every measure's time signature to the correct number in order to avoid constantly dealing with this error.

I would find this EXTREMELY useful and having an option like this would speed up entry considerably.

Thanks so much.

Larry,

 

Until MM adds this feature, I suggest you download the JW Meter and Rhythm plugin. It's free and it should make your life easier when composing chant notation.
