Attached is a point at which the singer speaks and does not sing. Per that image, the original publisher has a note-stem with no notehead, the modern way of doing such a thing being an X-notehead, which I am using right now.
I was able to right-click and bring up ‘noteheads’, but it did not give me an option for ‘blank notehead’ as Finale currently does. Of course, I have probably missed this somewhere. Thanks, all!
