deleting rests

it seems silly, I know, but i have a problem deleting single rests. a small thing for many but a PITA for me!


A rest represents silence. Normally the way to get rid of silence is to fill it with sound - simply replace it by the note(s) you want to hear instead of silence.

If that doesn't seem to apply to your situation, it could be you accidentally added extra beats to a bar, or used voices inappropriately (adding notes in voices 2, 3 or 4 before first using voice 1). If you attach your score and explain in more detail what rest you want to delete and why, we can assist better.
