Joining voices / rests

• Oct 16, 2012 - 13:07

I have trouble to join voices. I want to join clarinet II and III to same stave but I got overlapping rests.
I follow these steps:
Select all measures of Clarinet II
Edit -> Voice -> Exchange voice 1-2
Selected all measures of Clarinet III
Copy Clarinet III
selecting 1'st measure of clarinet II

The notes come ok but the (half note and quarter note) rest is overlapping.
I expect to got rest for Voice 1 upper space and Voice 2 in lower space (if the rest is in different duration) and rest as normal if the rest in both voices is same duration.
Is that possible (without manually editing every rest?)

There is more elaborate example what I want in example.
The notes in example is pure nonsense but I just focus on rest's.

So the stave 1 and 2 is as written.
Stave 3 is merged stave 1 and 2 to two voices as is produced.
Stave 4 is what I want to do. It's done manually but doing that on over 200 measures and 20 stave's is tedious.
So all the rest's in measure 1-4 and 6 doesn't overlap and I separate it moving up/down to resemble correct voice.
Measure 5 have rest with same durattion on same place and is alreday in rihgt place.
So is there some way to make stave 4 looking output without need to mannualy edit every uneven rest?

Not in 1.2 - rests need to be adjusted manually. Sometimes copy/paste can be an effective tool if you have a lot of similar measures. 2.0 will adjust multivoice rests automatically.
