Add staff property to 'collaps' rests in multi-voice context into just one, as it is common in e.g. closed Score SATB format. Currently it is possible by making the voice 2 rests invisible, which results in the corresponding voice 1 rests at the same Position (and duration) to 'center' to the staff, but in large score this is quite cumbersome to Change them all, and just making all voice 2 rests invisible doesn't always get the desired result, in cases where there is no corresponding rest in voice 1.

See also https://musescore.org/de/node/138091, seems at least Capella has such an Option.

Fwiw, it would probably be simple to create a plugin for this. But an automatic option is not a bad idea. I wonder if this work could be combined with other options to make things more hymn-friendly? Seems I'm remembering other requests, or maybe it was just previous times this same subject came up?
