Strange rest


I really hope you can help. I am new to Dorico and notation in general. However, I’ve been creating some percussion kits, but for some reason certain notes have a rest added over head. As I say I am quite new to notation, but it doesn’t seem correct to me. I would be very grateful if anyone could tell me what I am doing wrong. See the highlighted yellow in the image below.

Many thanks in advance,

I am wondering whether you’ve set that cowbell to a down-stem voice, while all the other instruments are upstem voice. Either change it to upstem voice, or use an extra voice (cmd-click>Percussion > Change voice to Extra downstem voice) Or wait for Dorico 4 and remove rest :sweat_smile:

Thank you so much - this has resolved my issue.

All the best,
