Piano texture

Does anyone have any tips about variable-voice piano texture. I am ending up with a whole pile of redundant rests. Is there any way around this?


Edit>Remove rests?

Also, if you haven’t turned on voice colors, that will help. It’s easy to unintentionally create new voices in Dorico.


“Remove rests” is one of dorico’s BEST features. Just select whatever you don’t want and click that command and they disappear like magic.

I agree with @Stephen_Taylor

in fact Dorico usually doesn’t end up

Just some of them, easily removed with a key command (" \ " here)…

Thanks all: I had not seen the Remove Rests function.
Complete solution!
