Thank you for your quick reply.

I need the first situation of NR 1.2.3: "Different time signatures with equal-length measures."  enablePolymeter defeats this.

Some instruments have all 2/4; some have 2/4, then 6/8 and then 2/4 again.

I understand polymetric notation (NR 1,2,3).  I have a piece which has a
polymetric section in the middle where the rest of the piece is not
polymetric.  Some parts have the same time signature for the whole piece.

At the point where the polymetric section begins and ends I want to
remove the time signature from the parts whose time signature doesn't

TIA for any help with this including Lilypond manual references if relevant.

I don't quite understand the question since this is pretty much what happens by default.

\version "2.25.2"

\layout {

filler = { c'4 4 4 4 4 4 }

  \new Staff { \time 3/4 \filler \time 2/4 \filler \time 3/4 \filler }
  \new Staff { \time 3/4 \filler \filler \filler }

What am I missing?
