Hi Kieren,

Thanks, and I agree. The nuisance is that you have to count all the silent bars 
where there aren't any tempo changes, which is far less convenient than simply 
adding a \tempo "Allegro" at the relevant place in the score! I always miscount 
by at least 1. As this particular score has only 6 such markings, but quite a 
few time signature changes it's easier to use Hwaen Ch'uqi's solution. Or is 
there a way of moving to a particular bar number without all the counting? That 
would be difficult if there are \set Score.currentBarNumber commands to cope 
with as well.

Best regards,
