Choose Bars of Rest from the Display menu.
You can explicitly consolidate a number of bars of rest, or have QuickScore Elite automatically find and consolidate the bars of rest for all or part of your piece. Consolidated bars of rest are displayed with a bars of rest sign with the number of resting bars above it. Select Set or Calculate on the left side of the dialog to either consolidate bars of rest explicitly or have QuickScore Elite do it.
If you choose Set, the two boxes on the top left part of the dialog will be enabled for input. Choose Compress to compress a number of resting bars into a single bar with a bars of rest sign. Choose Decompress to take a single bar with a bars of rest sign and expand it into its component resting bars. Next, select the bars you want to explicitly compress or decompress by typing in the bar numbers or setting them with the spin controls.
If you choose Calculate, the three boxes on the bottom left part of the dialog will be enabled for input. You can choose the current track or all your tracks by selecting Track n (where n is the current track number) or All Tracks. You can choose to affect all bars or a range of bars by clicking on All bars or From Bar in the lower right part of this section. If you select From Bar, make sure you set the range of bars you want to affect by typing in the appropriate bar numbers or by setting them using the spin controls to the right of the numbers. Choose the minimum number of empty bars that will be consolidated into a single bar containing a bars of rest sign by typing in a number or setting it with the spin controls in the Compress n bars of rest or more section of the dialog. Now every time QuickScore Elite finds a number of empty bars that is equal to or greater than the number you set, these empty bars will be consolidated into a single bar. If a number of empty bars is encountered that is smaller than this number, they will not be consolidated.
