first I noticed a problem in the spacing, which occurs when you hide rests in empty bars. This is not too much of a problem, when working on the full score, but it becomes one, when working on separate parts. while you can just work it out with leaving the rests and using the color-option of opacity in the full score to avoid the bad spacing, it becomes tricky in the separate part, because even if you insert an empty text in every single part to split up the multi rest, even single bar rests are put in the “multi rest”-category and color settings and opacity are not applying to those…for whatever reason. You can take away the one over the single bar rests in the engraving options but then…well…I have attached a file in which you can try to “hide” the rests in the part. To get there I had to split up the multi rest (which later I noticed is risky because it splits it up in every part!) and I have adjusted the spacing which is not fun either. I also have adjusted the engraving options to not show the 1 over the single rests.
There are some complicated workarounds for now, but it is not pretty. I would very much like to see this issue addressed in one of the next updates/upgrades.
