Figuring things out…
I edited a Tenor Sax layout (part of a multi-instrument score) and got it looking like I wanted it.
The chords were visible in light green. I want those chords to show so I went to Setup, right clicked on Tenor Sax, and chose
Chord Symbols–>Show For All.
This showed the symbols but changed the formatting of my Tenor Sax Layout to this
Leo tells us that if a bar has a Chord symbol over it, it’s not an empty bar. I’m assuming this is why ‘Show Chords’ changed the look of the layout - there’s a chord symbol at the first bar of the piece. (Just FYI, there is some notation in the first bar of the piece in another part; at first I thought that’s why Dorico was splitting that 7 bar rest into 6 + 1).
I don’t need the sax player to see the 1 + 6. I just want him to be able to count off 7 bars and come in. Is there a way to do retain that 7 bar multi rest while adding the Chord symbols in? I tried ‘Hide Barline’ and several other things. Thanks as always.
