i know, i know - another hide-rests thread. But I still found no solution for the following problem.
I like to have the result as shown in picture 1.
Now I didnt find any solution for writing this in one voice and make every 2nd note to another voice. Is there any… lets call it workaround? (in dorico, it seems, everything but spacing is a workaround) Anyway. I’m now in picture 2. I use the “Remove Rest” feature instead of just deleting them and when I like to remove the last rest… Lets have a look at picture 3.
Not the right solution, I think. I read something about implicit and explicit rests…
You can only hide implicit rests using Starts voice and Ends voice in the Notes and Rests group of the Properties panel.
After reading what the heck implicit and explicits rests are (I’ve just no idea, what that means), I got crazy about this start and end voice thing. But whatever I try - the last break as shown in picture 2 stays visible. After fiddling about the “start-end voice thing” some “removed” rests coming back to life like hamlets father. It is to be crazy. I thought that it couldn’t get more unintuitive after I tried to place the very unusual expression instructions espressivo and dolce (yeah, there is a workaround! ) and try to split a beam between tied notes (of course it only works in engraving mode and not in write mode ). But this is… well, a new category of unintuitiviness.
Anyway, sorry for writing more than my question is about - but I spent hours with this simple things.
