I have a section with a time signature of 9/8 + 2/4 with a dashed line between the 9/8 and the 2/4 measures. This whole section is just 4 measures long. Is there a way to have the measure numbers skip the 2/4 measures, so that a single 9/8 + 2/4 measure counts as a single measure?

In the Measure Attributes window, there is a checkbox for "include in measure numbering."

(Full Finale only. Obviously, this is what you're using, but for the convenience of others, please add the program and version you are using to your signature, in the user control panel.)

That is the easiest way, and may be fine, but unchecking "include in measure numbering" is associated with a bug in certain situations (I avoid it). The alternative would be multiple measure number regions:

A dashed barline is one of the standard measure attributes.  Choose the "Measure Tool" and double click the measure to see the available options.

Another way to grab that URL is a right click on the small image, and selecting Copy link.

Thanks for the tip, michelp.  I never thought to do that.  BTW, with IE it's called "Copy Shortcut", Chrome "Copy Link Address", and Firefox "Copy Link location"

Me, too. Keep in mind, though, that this won't work (at least, it doesn't for me in Firefox) if there is a space in the picture name. Use an underline, instead: <screen_shot>, rather than <screen shot>.

If you want to put a dashed barline in the middle of your composite bars, you in reality have to make it into two bars, 9/8 and 4/4 in your first measure, for example, and then hide the fact that you've done so.

Alas, the split-measure plug-in, which will do all the hiding for you, refuses to work on composite time signatures! You can study the faile I posted above. Look at the time-signature and measure attributes for the two halves of the split measure.

This is so common it would be cool if it were an option in the time signature dialog. You could specify where you wanted a dashed barline inserted every measure.

Look in your expressions, in the Miscellaneous Category.

I don't like the expression solution since you need to manually make space for it between the notes, but it is easier than splitting the measure.

Here's a recent thread on the split-measure plug-in, with some instructions on how to replicate what it does (since you can't use it in this case).
