Split Measure (Insert Barline)

Command Location: Measures Menu

A given measure can be split into two parts, creating two smaller measures with new time signatures. This is especially useful if you wish to break a single, long measure (perhaps containing extended trill notes) onto two separate systems or pages.

When you open the Split Measures dialog, MidiIllustrator will automatically determine all the possible split points in the measure, and the resulting time signatures the two resulting smaller measures will have after the split is completed.

Move the slider control to the desired split position in the measure. You can also round up the possible split points to a particular note size.

Once the action is completed, you can (if desired) edit the Time Signature for each new measure.
