Hiding rests impossible in condensed score?

It seems impossible to hide rests in a condensed score? Is that right? Or is there a way?

There are several ways. Could you describe the rests you want to hide and why?

Thanks Mark. There are resting parts in the score while there is an extended cadenza passage. These need to look like common time. Here’s an example from the uncondensed score:

Condensing it reveals the hidden rests, and I haven’t found a way to fix this:

As you see, one part is still correct, but I can’t see the difference between it and the others.

Use tuplets in the instruments that do not play, so that their rests appear as if it were common time. Tuplets (mostly hidden ones) solve most rhythmic issues in Dorico :wink:

Thank you, Marc. An excellent suggestion. Still, it seems so random that some rests are hidden and some aren’t.

With the solution I gave you, no rests are hidden, that’s the beauty of it!
