Remove Rests on iPad

I apologize if this has been discussed. I searched but couldn’t find anything related: how do I “Remove Rests" as is found in the full version of Dorico? When using multiple voices, that menu item does the trick but I can’t find it in the iPad version.

I don’t know the direct answer but in any case you should be able to set the „start voice“ and „end voice“ properties in the properties panel (which remove rests would do for you automatically)

Remove Rests isn’t currently included in the context menu on the secondary toolbar, but I’ll add that in a future version. Thanks for the feedback!


Is this addressed already? The documentation mentions this but I cannot find it anywhere: Deleting rests

I’m afraid I don’t think it is addressed in the current iPad version, no, but a new update will be coming early next year either at the same time as or shortly after Dorico 4, so there is not too much longer to wait for a new version with a number of changes.

Is it already possible? Was searching a while and couldn’t find out how to…End voice doesn’t worked. Situation - hiding a rest in 6/8 on the end of the piece because of a pickup on a beginnig…Thank you

If you have a hardware keyboard attached to your iPad, you should be able to access Remove Rests via the jump bar. The forthcoming Dorico for iPad 5.1 update will make it possible to access the jump bar without a hardware keyboard attached.


How do I access the jump bar without a hardware keyboard on iPad? Thx!

Dorico 5.1. for iPad Jump bar shortcut

I’ve been using 100% opaque color plus end voice when I have this problem–I’ve been transcribing BWV 1007 and there’re lots of weird voicing things.
