I am just starting to use MuseScore and have a question. I have a piece in 5/8 and grouped as a 3 + 2. When I change the time signature it automatically groups at 2 + 3. How do I change that?


Open the time signature properties. There you can change the note groups.
See the attached image from MuS 3 (example to show some possibilities).
Click on a note and the beam to the previous note will be toggled.


If you need this later too, you can create a new 5/8 time signature with a different grouping.

When I start a new file. I select the template. I click on the 4/4 time signature in the new template, then I go to "view", select "master palette", then "time signatures", then the 5/8 signature. It automatically makes it a 3 + 2 signature and I want a 2 + 3 signature. I don't see a way to change it.
