I need to write “Play 7” or Play 16 etc. in my drum set (5-line) parts.
I currently use multibars, no rests in empty bars. This gives the normal ‘tacet’ but I thought could be used for Play x since the x is already there.
Then I add the word “play” to the beat before and move it in Engrave to nearer the number (of bars it represents). I cannot see any prefix available in Engrave that would precede the number. (Not sure what I will do for a real tacet, but replacing “Play” with “Tacet” would work.)
Or sometimes use ‘simile’ in the bar before if the measure shows the rhythm.
As far as I know, we are still missing the repeat sign that goes within a stave so showing all measures I decided is not good, plus it uses up space. If I could replace the measure rest with them then this would help.
What is everyone currently doing for this? or am I missing some feature in v1.2?
