Unfortunately, when hiding or deleting rests of voice 2 in bar 4 accidently I have hidden as well the quarter rest at beat one of voice 1. After noticing this mistake I could not manage to reenter the quarter rest in voice 1 at beat one. Instead I had to add a new bar with the notes of bar 4 to get the quarter rest again in the new bar at beat one.
Is there any other solution then this work around with a new bar and entering the notes again?
Thank you! After reading this tip (force duration and “,”) I was able to solve an initial silent bar problem due to the whole bar rest (in 6/4 time) not showing. It was bugging me for a while but not any more…
In Dorico, rests don’t exist. They’re not “things” themselves but rather the empty space between things (notes), and the application dynamically generates them between the things (notes) depending on the context (prevailing meter and notes in the vicinity). Rests in Dorico aren’t “hidden” or “shown”, because again they don’t exist; rather voices are started and ended via the Properties panel. A voice that “ends” in the middle of a bar will not have any rests after it, because the voice has been ended. When you do “Remove Rests” in Dorico, the application is flipping those start/end voice properties, more so than actually removing the rests that you see (which again aren’t really there to begin with).
