Split multi-bar rest

Post by rkrentzman » Thu Aug 29, 2019 2:44 pm

Can someone enlighten me as what what this Engrave menu command is supposed to accomplish?

It doesn't seem to split multi-bar rests on part layouts, at least not for me.

A search for "split multi-bar rests" in the manual returned "no results".

In the full score, select the measure, and choose "Split" from Engrave mode. Switch to that part layout, and you'll see it. It also creates a signpost.

Got it, thanks.

So if I'm understanding correctly, this will affect all layouts. If I want the rest to be split in only one layout I still need to resort to the kluge of entering blank test in each measure? Although, there are some places where even this does not work, such as a single 1/4 measure. I was trying to not have a multi-bar rest there so I could show a quarter rest rather than a bar rest (solved by using an altered note head).

No, I think it’s just that one part. The flag is staff-specific, yes?

EDIT: No, sorry.

Yes, if you split a multi measure rest it affects all parts. In the score the signpost always appears above the top staff.

This should work if you put the text at any other rhythmic position than the beginning of the bar. This combined with forced duration and explicit rests should avoid the need of using altered noteheads.

Small note to say this is now documented in the Dorico Pro 3 manual :)
