When you double-click a song part or select Song Properties.. from the contextual menu, the Song Part Properties dialog appears:


A song part consists of a rackspace variation plus a collection of properties. The variation may be as stored, or it may have been edited just for that song part.

Name - displays the song part name (type another one if preferred).

Tempo - allows you to set a tempo for the song part. Turn on the Override global tempo toggle button to make this tempo active when this song part is selected.

Time signature - allows you to set the desired time signature for the song part; click on the numerator and select the desired value and then choose a value for the denominator from the drop-down menu. Turn on the Override global tempo toggle button to make this time signature active when this song part is selected.

Override global tempo - when this toggle button is turned on, the selected song part tempo will override both the global tempo and the song tempo (see the Song Properties dialog for more information). Hence, the Song part tempo is the highest priority.
