I’m a Finale user trying to switch to Dorico after 25 years using Finale. I would like to create a test for my theory class, and I need to hide rests. I’ve searched the help file and this forum and found some things, but I keep running into the same problem. The first section of the test, the students have to voice chords that are requested by roman numeral, and then resolve them. I need the the measures above, that they need to write the chords in, to be blank. I have tried hiding the rests by selecting the start and end points in the properties window. I have three bars they need to do this in. I can get rid of rests in 2 of the three, but never all three. I had thought to put notes in the measures and hide them (or make invisible or whatever), but couldn’t find anything. When I typed in “hide notes,” I got 135 results that had nothing to do with hiding notes. Even finding “hide rests” led to hours of filtering through articles and posts that had nothing to do with what I was looking for. I really need this to work to be rid of Finale. If not an answer, please, I need a valid workaround. Any suggestions? Not having default measure rests should not be this difficult a task, and I really hope I’ve missed a setting or something.
I’m on Mac OSX High Sierra, Dorico 2.1.
