I’m working on a work for full orchestra. I’m trying to hide empty bars but it is not working. I’ve tried removing the rests in the empty bars and it makes no difference.
I’m also experiencing a strange formatting where the bars are expanded to one bar per page - so the entire score is many pages long (over 100 bars in the piece). The bars aren’t longer because of the amount of notes contained in them, because sometimes a whole page has 5-6 semibreves.
What I’d like to do is simply hide all of the bars where the instrument is not playing (if this is possible) and to have a regular bar length.
