Well - I'm typesetting my own edition of a violin concerto (doesn't matter which one it is really). However, at bar 211 the solo violin begins a written-out cadenza provided by the composer (Tchaikovsky). After a dazzling display of virtuosic fireworks, the orchestra joins in. This nasty cadenza is actually written without bar lines ... no problem, I simply made all the bar lines "invisible". The problem now is that, technically, the orchestra comes back in after one bar's rest, where in actual fact it's take quite a few bars of music. How does one reset bar numbers JUST for the sake of being consistent with my mini score?

thanks from a very vexed and puzzled Finale user.

The easiest thing to do would be to set the measures of the cadenza to not be included in the numbering. Do that in the measure attributes window. Another way would be to use only one measure for the cadenza, and set the time signature to something like 47/4, or what ever number of beats there are in the measure, and use the normal time signature as the display signature. That is, if the cadenza doesn't break over a system.

To add to Migman's excellent suggestions, you could use a new measure number region after the cadenza. So if the cadenza starts at m. 100 and lasts 20 measures, you would remove the measure numbers for those measures and then after the cadenza have a new region that starts its numbering at 101.

Dear migman - that worked a treat. And thanks, too, to Bill (as always) for his erudition.
