Default Inserting time signature change moves later midi items?

I want to insert a few bars of 6/8 time into the middle of my project. My project time base is set to TIME, and the audio behaves as expected, but not the midi. When I do this, some of the midi that comes after the new 6/8 measure moves, and becomes out of time. How can I insert a new time signature without affecting the midi that comes after it?

I have read past threads about this, and did not see a solution.

That's a great video but it doesn't say anything about moving song sections and having the time signature markers move with them. If I have a verse with several time changes and I want to copy that section and move it later in the song, it seems I have to manually redo all the markers.

When timebases were first introduced, the devs reasoned that for the vast majority of cases, users would prefer MIDI to follow the tempo map and remain on the grid. Therefore,

* MIDI items do not follow the project default timebase. Instead they are automatically set to Beats, unless changed at item level. (To set their timebase, you must select the items, then right-click -> Item properties -> Set timebase to time; or run the action "Item properties: Set item timebase to time".)

* Even when a MIDI item's timebase is set to Time, it only affects the item start and item length. The MIDI notes and CCs *inside* the item will still follow the tempo map. To lock the MIDI notes and CCs to their time positions, the item Properties must be set to "Ignore project tempo", but if you simply change this setting, you will lose any existing tempo changes. To solve this problem SWS provides the actions "Enable "Ignore project tempo" for selected MIDI items and preserve time position of events (use tempo at item's start)". These actions can be applied to multiple items simultaneously.

Thank you.

Coming from pro tools, it's a difficult transition. I started using regions instead of markers to define my song sections and that works.
