You can use insert with measure stacks and have the time signatures paste as well, but you can't within an individual part.

Hi Bill:

Yes, in the Edit Filter dialog you will see many things are tied to the "Stack" of all staves in the score. I think your best bet is to copy paste in the score where you can see the impact of your time signature changes. While we are working to improve copy/paste functionality, I don't anticipate such a fundamental change would make it onto our roadmap.

Hi, Michael, well, this is such a substantial feature for professionals that I think, and correct me if I am wrong, it should be tackled with urgency!

If I want to copy paste from a draft with several issues into a fresh clean paper, when I do the old and usual "stacks selection" to bring all the metadata, I also bring the mistakes along and, no matter if you subsequently cancel all but the bars you needed to paste in the first place, all the wrong metadata remains stuck in the file, making the effort of doing a fresh new engraver useless.

Best

I can switch to Scroll View, and program a Staff Set of just one staff.

In a such Staff Set I can make a Stack Selection, copy, and Insert - and the time signatures are inserted as well.

 

Works both in the score and in the linked part (but you must create the Staff Set, even in the linked part).

 

Am I missing something?

If I misunderstand you, then I apologize.

Kudos to Peter for reminding us all of the clever work around with staff sets. That works, for now, to copy/paste the Time Signature of a selected staff.
