I wasn’t able to find an answer to this via a forum search, but if the answer is already there, thanks in advance for linking to to the post.
When writing hymns that have multiple verses, it is common to sometimes have a particular note that the choir sings in Vs 1 but does not sing in Vs 2, etc. From a visual perspective, it would be helpful to insert a rest symbol within the lyrics input panel so that a choir isn’t confused by a blank spot in the music. Is there a way to do this? When using Sibelius, I would insert a rest as a symbol and drag it to the desired spot, but that led to frequent formatting issues.
See the attachment for an example. In beat 4 of the measure, the choir doesn’t sing on vs 1 and 2 but does sing it on vs 3. I was hoping to insert an eighth note rest right after “siblings” and “them” in vs 1 and 2, respectively.
Thank you for any insight you might have!
