In an orchestral score, I have 6 bars of 4/4 with a fermata on bar 6. In the score all those bars show as 4/4. In the parts (where they’re not playing) however I’m getting a 2-bar multirest, then a 3-bar multirest, instead of just a full 5-bar multirest. Between the “2” & “3” is a signpost:
4/4 (q, 1+1+1+1)
This seems to be forcing these 5 bars to be split in 2 then 3. And it seems this can’t be erased ?
What could be done?
