In Musescore 3, how do you change from a normal time signature to something unmetered and then back again? I can't use any of the available time signatures offered in the Palettes menu.

You can make the measures any length you want regardless of the time signature. This is actually quite common for cadenzas and has been for a couple hundred years in music. To change the length of a measure, there are basically 3 ways.

  1. Right click the measure, choose measure properties and set the actual duration to the number of beats in the measure.

  2. Insert one note at a time using ctrl+shift+notename to enter a note

  3. Use the insert mode for note entry. See https://musescore.org/en/handbook/note-input-modes#timewise

Each method has it's purpose so you can decide which is best for your situation.
