I want to write in 3/4 4/4 meter. I want one measure of three, a bar line, and a measure of 4, throughout the piece. I have been able to get 3/4 + 4/4; however, I do not get a bar line at the end of the three measure. I am getting what would be a bar of 7/4.

Any suggestions how I can get a bar line at the end of the 3/4 measures and a bar line at the end of the 4/4 measures? I haven't been able to figure it our, currently.

 

Thanks so much for your suggestions.

Set up a 3/4 measure, and then a 4/4. Set the first to display as the composite, 3/4+4/4. Copy the two measures, and Paste Multiple for as many as you need. Select everything except the first measure, and in Measure attributes, set the time signature to always hide.

- Or, set both time signatures to display as 3/4+4/4.

In that way you do not need to hide time signatures.

 

Just another way to skin the cat.

Mike & Peter,

Thanks so much for your help on my compound meter issue. I did get Mike's solution figured out and am using that for my solution. Works just like he shows!
