Bar spacing when deleting rests

I’m working on an arrangement where it is necessary to write a long gliss over multiple measures, and to accurately indicate where the gliss starts and stops, I have to delete the rests in between. When I do this, I end up with measures that get squished together, and would be a sight reading nightmare… any suggestions on how to make this look better? Is there a better way to hide rests or notes that I’m missing, and still keep the horizontal spacing?

You are much better off hiding the bar rests by changing their opacity to 0, under Common > Color in the Properties panel.

Thanks! That is a perfect work around, and just couldn’t figure out how to do that!
