I need to enter some drum parts into my score. I have one of the official parts as Drum Set ("D.S.") but I'm having some trouble. First, the note stems are too long as you can see from the graphic (screenshot) I've tried to attach. Second, I can't figure out how to manipulate the layers - for example, in the bass drum part I have a quarter note beat on "1" and an eighth-note beat on the "and" of 2. I assume the kick drum is usually done as one layer by itself, but do I need to add an eighth-note rest on the downbeat of "2" and then do a regular eighth note value on the upbeat (2nd part) of beat 2? That's going to look awfully busy - I'd like it to look in the bass drum like there's a quarter note on beat one, and then an 1/8 note on the "and" of beat two, with no pesky 1/8 rest in between.

If the problem is hiding a rest in a specific layer, use Speedy entry, position the cursor over it and use the * key.

Or if you are using simple entry, select the rest, and hit the H key.

Simple Entry, QWERTY keyboard. That's my system, and I'm stickin' to it.

But my main question/inquiry is that each beat has to be accounted for, correct? Even if it's invisible, a rest has to be there?

If I understand you correctly, yes. All beats must be accounted for, and the rests, visible or not, are needed to keep the layers aligned.
