As mentioned in the thread Allow time signatures with partial measures when timebase=time:

To insert such timesig markers, the user has to switch the timebase to Beats, insert the marker, and switch the timebase back to Time.

I do not see a reason why timesigs with partial measures should be restricted to Timebase = Beats. To the contrary, when I do tempo mapping, I am much more likely to be working in Timebase = Time.
In the new pre-releases, this help text ("option disabled because project tempo envelope timebase is set to time") has been removed from the Tempo/Timesig dialog box:

Previous versions (tempo envelope timebase = time):

v5.65 (tempo envelope timebase = time):

Preferably, the restriction on partial measures should be removed. However, if there is a technical reason why insertion of partial measures is not possible when timebase = time, the help text is useful to avoid user confusion.
