Seems to me you want to use \partial, no? That is, if the time
signature is invisible, there won't be a visible difference in the
output, and \partial is a lot easier than juggling transparent
TimeSigs, X-extents, etc.

Look in the docs (or archive) for discussions on this feature. I'll
even start you off with a link, to make sure I don't get flamed like
the last time I tried to help someone...  ;)

Thank you, that link explained everything beautifully.  And it led me
into a part of the manual I hadn't seen yet; good explanations for
everything.  And here I was stuck googling for invisible time signature


It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
