Unfortunately at present Dorico does not provide any features for drawing time signatures outside the staff, or large time signatures, as sometimes used in conductors scores for commercial music and film, but we plan to add this capability in future.

Feature request: I write music with frequent meter changes so I would really like Dorico to be able to display time signatures like this:

Go to Engrave > Font Styles, select the ‘Time signatures font’ style, and override the size: try 24pt or even 28pt and see what you think.

Yes, this is very close! Can I put a little space between the two numbers so it's very clear?

Also, is it possible to use a font other than Bravura? This is what I'm currently using in Sibelius:

PostScript name TempoTime
Full name TempoTime
Family TempoTime
Style Regular
Kind PostScript Type1
Language
Script
Version 001.000
Location /Library/Fonts/TempoTime.bmap (active copy)
Unique name TempoTime
Trademark Copyright (c) 2001, Bill Duncan - G. William Music Production
Enabled Yes
Duplicate No
Copy protected No
Glyph count 120
Other copies /Library/Fonts/TempoTime.bmap (original) (inactive copy)

Unfortunately it’s not easy to use another font at the moment: only a SMuFL-compliant font will do. In the future we will certainly make it easier to substitute other fonts.
