today I need your support to know if it is possible to condense multi measure rests manually for selected measures, without turning on the option in Layout options.
I know, it is possible to mark the breaks in Engrave mode before turning on the option for multi measure rests, but today I’m trying to find in Dorico a good Finale feature that allows to create a multi measure rests for selected measures.
Thanks as usually
No, it’s not possible to force Dorico to consolidate a particular range of bars as a multi-bar rest, I’m afraid.
Thanks for the reply Daniel,
anyway, if it possible I would turn this question in a feature request. For many other things we can freely override the option, I think that also this feature could make happy not only me.
I hope you take in account
What is the use case for this? In other words, what is the intended meaning of having individual empty bars elsewhere, and one multirest in the same score? I daresay a feature request for Dorico needs to include some semantic purpose.
One way this would be useful for me is when dealing with percussion scores. I have a custom score based off the full score with only percussion parts. It would be great if I could create multimeasure rests in areas that do not feature any percussion. Otherwise its just 20 empty bars taking up a page. I could create a similar effect in a custom percussion part with all 4 parts so the solution is not impossible, but, again, wouldn’t hurt if I could do it.
But how would turning on multimeasure rests in Lay-out options not solve this problem?
Lolz, there’s a feature for everything! It takes a while for me to remember all of these. Thank you.
