Normally, rests are automatically displayed but you may decide not to display rests for a given bar or track. You may then put them in yourself (using graphic rest symbols from the notes palette in the Score Editor) if you wish. This can happen if you can find no way to display the rests in the bar without obscuring music or other symbols in the bar. Try changing the rest levels for rests in a bar before you get rid of rests entirely and try to put them in yourself.
To eliminate the display of rests for the current track, choose Track from the Display menu and set Display Rests to No. To eliminate the display of rests for the current bar, choose Bar from the Display menu and set Display Rests to No.
If you are having trouble with rests that overlap notes or other symbols you can move the rests in the bar up or down to get them out of the way. To do this, choose Bar from the Display menu and change the Rest Levels value. There are separate rest levels for the default voice, voice 1 and voice 2.
Rest levels are measured in rows from the top of the staff. There are two rows between each staff line or ledger line. Setting Rest Levels only affect rests in the current bar.
