Multimeasure Rest

• Jun 5, 2023 - 00:36

I want to add a long rest for multiple bars.
I tried what I found in the Handbook;
But it didn't work.
I tried both methods and they only add the rest for the final bars that I am still writing in them, not in the middle of the score.
I hope you understood what I mean.
I really want your help to finish my project.
Thanks in Advance.

1) Don't enable multimeasure rests until you have finished entering all the notes.
2) Just leave empty any bars in the middle of the score that you want combined into a multimeasure rest. E.g. if you want a 10 bar multimeasure rest, leave 10 empty bars
3) To toggle multimeasure rests on (after entering all the notes) use keyboard shortcut M

If you are still stuck attach your score (.mscz file) and explain where you want the multimeasure rests.

Switching to multi measure rests in a score with several instruments only works if the measures are empty for all these instruments.

However, this is not usual in a score, because then the music would be interrupted for several measures - no instrument is playing. Normally, this is used in the excerpts and the multi-measure pauses are turned on there by default.
