Changing Time Signature Within Song

So I've been using FamiTracker for a while, and understand how to change row and stuff to make it so that I can write in things other than 4/4, but how would I go about changing from something like 4/4 to something more awkward like 7/8 or 10/8 in the middle of a song? Is that possible? Help if you can and thanks in advance.

You can use the Fxx command to change the speed (frames per row), and alternate between different speeds to create a swing beat. Is that what you mean?

Using Fxx only creates grooves, and does not affect the time signature. To truly change time signature in a song, you must change the number of rows.
I have arranged these for you.

2/4 Timing: 32 rows
3/4 Timing: 48 rows.
5/4 Timing: 80 rows.
12/8 Timing: 96 rows.

Hopefully this helps.

You may find it easy to use D00 to skip to the next frame, effectively changing the number of rows in a certain frame.
