Courtesy time sig at DC

• Feb 16, 2017 - 09:34

How do you put in a time sig at the end of the last measure, where you have a DC going back to a different time sig at the beginning?


The best way depends on what comes after the DC.

If you have a coda with a different time signature than the capo, put an empty measure after the DC with the time signature and make the measure rest invisible. It will go on the measure after that and the empty measure will never be played.

If you have a coda with the same time signature as the capo, put in a line break and a courtesy signature will be made.

If the DC is the last measure, put in a line break at the DC, in the next measure put the time signature and hide empty staves.
