I wish to create a 36 bar block rest (multimeasure rest) without having to extract the part. Mine are simple slash chord lead sheets.

Is this possible? Do I have to actually 'grab' 36 bars and then run a command against the selection in order to see my block rest with the number 36 above it? If so, (and I've tried this), it's not working for me.

Read up on it but the manual seems more clear as it applies to part extraction.

Hope this can be done 'live' as it were.

thank you

In Score View, select the 36 measures with the Measure Tool. Go to Measure/Multimeasure Rests/Create.

Of course, the 36 measures have to be empty, meaning you have not manually entered whole rests. Also, double barlines automatically break a multimeasure rest by default.

That was it. I had slash notation (on top of quarter rests) and once I cleared these, I got my measures.

thank you very much!
