this is teasing me a lot and I can’t see a reason for it:
If you look at the attached example (no real world example …), Dorico is filling up only the bar, where the 2nd voice comes in, with rests, even if the 2nd voice is not set to begin a voice and the notations option is set to show bar rests in empty bars for pausing voices. As you can see, it doesn’t matter, which voice comes in first.
I really would prefer, if Dorico would fill in rests by default here!
When the peace starts on the first beat, I can just add a bar rest in the first bar, and all the bar in between will be filled as well. But in this situation with the pickup bar, I always have to enter the rest with force duration, to been shown correctly in the pickup bar. Does someone have a quicker method?
