    Full measure rest

    Full measure rest

    When an entire measure is devoid of notes, a full measure (full bar) rest is used.
    A full measure rest looks like a whole note (semi-breve) rest, except it is centered in the middle of a measure

    To create a full measure rest, select a measure and press Del. All notes and rests in this measure are then replaced by a full measure rest.

    Multi-measure rest

    Multi-measure rest

    Multi-measure (multi-bar) rests indicate a long duration of silence for an instrument and are frequently used in ensemble sheet music. They are automatically interrupted at important points, such as double bar lines, rehearsal marks, key- or time signatures, etc.
    Multi-measure rests have a number above the staff indicating the duration of the rest by the number of measures


    1. From the menu, choose StyleGeneral...
    2. Click on the "Score" tab, if it is not already selected
    3. Add a check mark next to "Create multi-measure rests"


    The style option automatically creates multi-measure rests throughout the score. Therefore, it is recommended that you enter all your notes first and then turn on multi-measure rests afterward.

    Break multimeasure rest

    See also: Measure operation: Break multi-measure rest

    You may want to have a multi-measure rest divided into two multi-measure rests.

    This option should be checked before turning on the "Create multi-measure rests" option in Style → General..., in the "Score" tab.
    Select the first measure where you want the second multi-measure rest to start, and do a right-click Measure Properties → Break multi-measure rest.

    Note that multi-measure rests are interrupted if there is a rehearsal mark (not a simple text), section break, key or time signature change, or double bar line.
