I have lots of scores I want to put multi-measure rests in! Saves paper for one thing. . . These are mostly horn or string arrangements, so typically I lay out the overall structure in chord changes on a single staff, then build the parts - but when I go to print the score, I like to keep it as condensed as possible & I don't really need to follow the chord chart if I'm conducting so I hide that staff - but even just the chord symbols in it prevent me from putting multimeasure rests in the visible staves. Maybe this is a situation they didn't forsee, but it still seems strange that something that's not on the page is dictating the format of things that are. . . in any case, Finale has the ability to force hide staves in the score as well as to create multimeasure rests in the score so they should both work together.

Maybe I can create another linked part that is in effect a reduced score without the hidden staff. Any way I do it is extra work, but at least that would allow me to save it & not lose any formatting or the "chart" part. . .

Without seeing the file, I can't be sure, however I would have thought that one of the "blank notation" staff styles would allow the MM rests to be created ... ?

Actually, there are occasions where a score can have a MM rest. A partial orchestration would be one example. I have done this quite frequently.

Now, about doing a MM rest with measures that have notes in them, you might be stuck with the workaround. I'll have to report back later.

A score would never have multimeasure rests... only a part would.

Are the objects in that hidden staff expressions with a category that breaks rests?

If the composer says in effect to the performer: "I do not care whether you perform my music or not," we cannot argue the matter. But if he indicates: "I want you to perform and respond to this music," then his fundamental duty is to write his music so that it is accessible to interpretation. When the performer cannot approach the composer's meaning because of capriciously obscure notation, he may in effect say to the composer: "Why should I bother to puzzle out your music?" - Gardner Read

Any trick around this? Only thing I can figure is to cut everything from the hidden staff in scroll view, then make the multi-measure rests in the score & print it out, then re-paste the cut (which then un-creates the multimeasure rests. . .) or else undo. . . .
