Use the system track to insert two beats. You will need to hold down the alt key.
Thank’s for a speedy answer Dan!
But I can’t insert beats in the first bar with the system track. It inserts the beats in the second bar when I select the first bar…
And why don’t the chords move with the notes ? - seems like a design flaw to me…
Does this work for you?
With Insert Mode on, select the first note, type Shift-b, and type 2/4 in the popover. This will insert 2 beats of rests for you and shift all music and chord symbols, if that’s what you are looking for.
I have no clue what is going on with your 2nd issue…
Your second issue is almost certainly a Starts Voice issue. Select the first note, look down to the properties panel and uncheck “Starts Voice”
This is not what I’m looking for. All the notes and chords are in the right place as it is now. The problem is that the first bar only has 2 beats and I need a 2 beats rest at the beginning.
