Empty bar rests not showing

I’ve a Harp part, empty bar rests are missing from the lower stave. Does anyone know why, and what I can do to bring these back?

Their absence makes it impossible to insert notes into the lower stave, because there’s no rest to click on, to tell Dorico where to stat entering notes.

This issue may relate to pianoleo’s description about XML imports, here:

Selecting the first/last notes in that first bar on the lower staff and checking whether the Starts voice / Ends voice properties are activated in the Properties panel might fix the missing rests.

In general, you can always input onto staves, bar rests or no, by getting the caret onto them e.g. by double-clicking on the staff or moving the caret from elsewhere.

Thanks for the link Lillie and the useful advice.

I ended up deleting the whole harp part and starting from scratch.

The following tip you pointed to is useful:

To move the caret to the staff above/below, press Up Arrow/Down Arrow.

evan, in a multi-staff instrument your musical line can move from the lower staff to the upper staff and back again. In these cross-staff situations there should not be any rests shown in the staff the line just left. Your above example looks like such a case.
