Document Options-Time Signatures dialog box

How to get there

Choose Document > Document Options and select Time Signatures.

What it does

You can vertically adjust the abbreviated cut and common time symbols, and you can also separately adjust the top time signature symbol that shows the number of beats and the bottom symbol that shows the duration of the beat. You can easily create enlarged time signatures by choosing a larger point size for the time signature font (in the Select Default Fonts dialog box), then adjusting the placement of the top and bottom symbols within this dialog box. This dialog box also contains the settings for selecting the abbreviated cut and common time symbols, as well as spacing options. Since the appearance of time signatures sometimes differs between the part and score, separate settings are available - one for the score and one for parts.
