I am working on a piece that switch from a 3/4 124bpm section to a 5/4 136bpm section after a half measure rest, how do I notate this?

    Apologies for the late reply! You can change time signatures and tempos, but currently tempos can only be changed at the beginning of a measure. Both of these are achieved with notations. The time signature and tempo change notations are the first listed under Measure Notations. Tapping on the icon (or using the Shift + T / Shift + M shortcuts on the Mac respectively) will display a popover that lets you choose the new time signature or tempo.

    Hope this helps, and let me know if you need anything else!
