I am hoping that some clever chap can assist me with this problem. Attached to this post is a small dorico file of the choir part to the UK national anthem. The main orchestration comprises of the Gordon Jacob brass fanfare, the first verse (using standard harmony) and then a second verse using Jacob harmony. The file was an xml import from Sibelius and you can see there are no visible bars rest between bars 1 and 13.
NB: I have inserted one note in bar 1 (during my attempts to fix this, but to no avail). When it is removed the whole introduction is squished down (write mode). In Engrave mode it does exactly the same.
I have already tried Setup>Layout Options (selected Players) and have selected the part and ‘all’ then toggled the ‘Show bars rests in empty bars’ (which is on) but this did nothing.
Could anybody please figure out what I’ve done wrong?
NB: The rest were not invisible in the Sib 6 file prior to xml export (Doliet 6)
