Creating a rest has stopped working
I used to have no trouble making rests with the zero key. But I stopped using the program for several months and when I took it up again I couldn't make a rest that way. I've reloaded the program but that didn't seem to have any effect on rests.
I did find an alternative, but it's pretty awkward -- to make a quarter-rest (for instance) you can just enter a quarter-note on any pitch, then go back and delete it. It leaves a quarter-rest. But it does slow down note entry quite a lot.
It's possible I forgot some important step in creating rests. The Handbook isn't much help on this point. Does anyone have a similar problem? Possibly a solution?
