Enter 2nd voice where it exists only for half of the measure

• Nov 14, 2021 - 03:57

I followed the instruction on https://musescore.org/en/handbook/3/voices.

My situation is not covered by the example. I have a 4/4 measure. The first half of the measure has only 1 voice, while the second half has two voices. How can I enter this?


Click on an empty part of the measure, press N then [Ctrl][Alt]2
(you are now in Note Entry, 2nd Voice)
Enter a half-note rest and then your notes
Make the rest in the first half of the bar invisible by clicking on it and pressing V

I prefer to make rests invisible rather than deleting them since it makes later corrections to the score easier and i find it easier to read. They don't show up on the printed score and you can hide/unhide all invisible marks on screen.
