Here’s a screen shot of what’s happening:
I’m having an issue where I’ve got a player holding vibraphone and a percussion kit with just bass drum, but when it switches from the drum back to vibes in this particular spot, it seems to be leaving out a few rests (there should be an eighth and quarter rest there). Also, the staff lines are colliding with the note and I don’t see a way to shorten them—I’d rather not move everything over with horizontal spacing.
It appears that the missing rests are because the vibraphone part has a half rest at the beginning of the measure, but of course that doesn’t show when the bass drum has a downbeat. If I place forced position rests in the vibraphone part I can make the rests appear, but it still doesn’t fix the spacing/collision problem.
Is there a way to manually decide where exactly the instrument change happens? I’d ideally like the instrument change to just be on the next big beat (starting on the second half note of the measure) for simplicity’s sake.
