I have a MIDI file from which I want to create a score for a couple of the tracks. I'm viewing those selected tracks in the score window. There are some sections where there is nothing to play and so rather than have bars containing nothing but a bar rest symbol, I'd like to have it display a single bar with a number over the bar rest showing how many bars of rest it represents.

 

I can't figure out how to do that --- any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

David

    Hi

     

    Drag a Multi-Bar rest symbol from the rest partbox and drop it at the required bar.

     

    See the section of the manual "Using Multi-Bar Rests in the Score Editor" (p903) for all the details.

    Hi

     

    You can find the pdf's here (click on the 'view asPDF' link, or control click and "Save As").

    Re disappearing staffs, sounds like you need to check out the "Hierarchy" button ( also know as the 'Leave Folder' and 'up a level' button). See p 97 of your new pdf :-)

     

    You could also move up a level by 2x clicking in the background of the editor.

    Hi

     

    No Prob!

     

    by the way, if you want to add score 'elements' from the PartBox to multiple staffs, select the required staffs (Shift Click) and hold down Shift whilst you add the 'element'.
