Yes, I know I can manually delete them - lots and lots. Again, why does this option not do what one would think, actually not show the bar rests in an inactive voice? Needless to say if I choose Ends Voice Immediately in Properties it has no effect. This is Bach, not my fancy modernist stuff…
What’s the primary voice on the staff?
Assuming it’s the purple one (which would explain it - the option only applies to additional voices), I’d select the lower staff in bar 6, shift-click the lower staff in the last affected bar in this passage and hit V.
So, clearly the upstem purple voice is the primary voice (yes?) The bar rests for the downstem voice I added by hand. Then if I add more notes in the last bar in the primary voice I don’t see any full bar rest for the green voice.
I know that now, but it only puts in a bar rest if I add notes futrher down the track in that additional voice. Is it the Dorico considers the voice to have ‘stopped’? And my setetings are to show full bar rests in additional voices, as mentioned a couple of times - hence my perplexity.
Ah, I misunderstood. Your initial post was about omitting bar rests.
I think it makes sense to not show the bar rests of voices that are no longer used in a flow. It would be a huge clutter. Why would you want to show that a voice is not present anymore with bar rests in the last 20 or so bars?
Surely not something I recall seeing in published examples off the top of my head.
