Yes, you can write whatever measures you want and even... you can
superimpose different time signatures ( it's the meaning of polymetric).
You can also use irrational tuplets... etc...
If you know how to paste and delete in a text editor you're done.
Compile and listen to the Demos 3 and 4, you'd have an idea.

To Philipp: If you have an opinion why such a difficulty to understand
what's the 'G'igsaw does let me know, i could improve the Tutorials or
the description of its capabilities? It will be a benefit for all.
Anyway thanks to your feedback.

Have fun.
