Remove Rests & Part Layout Help

I’m trying to do an aleatoric notation but having issue with the layout after removing the rest.

Picture 1: Picture of the score: The Violin 2 Staff is exactly how I want it to appear in the score and parts (done by using “Remove Rests” in Edit)

Picture 2: Violin 2 Part: the “remove rests” feature has crunched the entire bars down to nothing.

Picture 3: Violin 1 Part has the spacing correct, but the rests need to be removed.

How can I fix this?

Have you tried to color the rests invisible instead of removing them? Note that you’ll need to propagate properties in order to have that result in all layouts.

PERFECT! This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
