Plain Jane Chord diagram section

A skilled player would enjoy this chords part with few stave markings, allowing free strumming. I’ve tried to create the format, but Dorico fills the bars with whole note rests, even when there are two chords per bar. Can a similar look be created in Dorico?

I believe you can select the rests and remove them with “Edit / Remove Rests”.

For this it is better to hide the bar rests globally in Layout Options > Players > Bar Rests. When you manually remove them, Dorico has nothing with which to space the empty bars, and they collapse too small.
