I am using Finale 2003. In one staff, I used 3 different layers to indicate 3 different instruments that enter on different beats. There are more rests than I want to be showing, so I want to be able to hide some of them. The only utility that I can find that hides rests only hides all the rests in a given layer. This is not what I want. In Sibelius you can just right click on any object and select 'Hide' from the menu. Why is such a simple process so difficult in Finale? Or is it impossible? Any ideas would be welcome. Thank you.

crisbastap,

Don't despair. In Speedy Entry, clicking "H" will hide the presently selected note or rest. This one's as easy as [or easier than] in Sibelius!

In speedy entry, put the cursor on the note and press the letter "o". In simple, press the letter "h". You must be in the proper layer to work.

Actually, In Finale 2003, you can in Speedy Entry hide a note/rest with the the letter "O" key OR the letter "H" key.

I've always been using the letter "O" key, but new users might find it easier to remember the letter "H" key.

He needs to use "show active layers only"

I'm not sure how "show active layers only" helps here, but I'm eager to know. Would you explain it further in another post?

One can hide rests in the presently active layer without using "show active layers only". Of course, in a complex passage it'll clearly reveal the layer you're working on.

In speedy entry it's easy to hid a note or a rest, just put the cursor on the note or rest and hit the letter O.
