I 'think' I have followed the advice in the handbook re adding accents into drum notation. It all goes swimmingly well until I fill the bar with slash notation. At that point the rests in voice 3 "drop" into the stave and look terrible. I can't even highlight them to make invisible. See attachment. Obviously user error but not sure why.

Well possible that "Fill with slashes" and a drum staff don't go together well, as in drum staves the voices are handled differently vs a 'normal' (pitched) staff

It's a bug in 3.6 (caused by some new code designed to avoid collisions in most other cases). You can work around it easily enough by selecting all voice 3 rests and applying an offset. Just right-click one, Select / More / Same voice. if you have trouble selecting one, try zooming in, and possibly offsetting one manually a little to make it easier to right-click (eg, navigate to one by keyboard then use cursor keys to move it).
