Force duration whole rest?

How do I force an explicit whole rest?

3/4 meter… I can force created a dotted half rest, but not a measure rest. It’s before the first played note so I can’t use Starts Voice shenanigans.


Set the note entry caret to the correct voice, then click “insert bar rest” from the right hand panel - see attachment.

You can define a keyboard short cut (Edit Preferences / Note input / create bar rest) if you want.

Note input, choose the correct voice, Shift-B, rest.
