I would really like to make a simple feature request:

Could we have a lock/unlock function for Time Signatures in the measure bar?

I use a bunch of different time signatures and also rely on the measure bar to quickly move through tracks.  I sometimes accidentally move one of the time-signature markers and this dominoes into other annoying issues (like marker displacement). It would be awesome to have a one click lock/unlock for the measure bar.

lock time signature(s) to range would also be great. as it is, if you drag/copy a range with multiple time signatures earlier in the time line, mayhem results, and the results are unpredictable. it is a real drag to have to manually add time signatures to areas in the time line where you want to move/paste ranges.

I think that problem could be remedied if they moved the time signature markers to somewhere above the ruler. I too find it annoying when I accidentally move around a time signature point.. most of the times I don't notice this until later and by then it becomes a major headache.

I would love to be able to select multiple time signature changes and drag them around the track so that they still change in relation to each other.  Currently one needs to either delete/move one around at a time which is a nuisance trying to get the beats to line up correctly.

Also, an option when inserting a time signature to select for how many bars that signature will last before reverting to the original signature would be awesome!
