How to delete excess bars/measures?

• Oct 26, 2020 - 06:14

I transcribed one of my school cadences but there are many measures of rests. How do I get rid of them?


Click on very first note or rest in the zone to delete
Shift click on the last one
That should give you a range selection marked by a blue rectangle
Press the keys ctrl+del
Attention : if you have selected part of a measure, that part of the measure will be deleted and you will be left with a partial measure. Not partially filled in but really shorter than a normal one. That can be what you want but generally it isn't, meaning that in the first step you must take care of selecting from the begininng of a measure to the end of (another) one, making a selection containing complete measures only.
