Multiple rests

Multiple consecutive rests can be automatically displayed as multi-rests.

Figure: A multi-rest over three bars


  1. Open the Score Settings and select the Layout page.
  2. Set the Multi-Rests option to the number of empty bars that are “allowed” before Cubase displays them as a multi-rest.

    For example, a value of 2 means that three or more consecutive empty bars are displayed as a multi-rest. If you set this to “Off”, multi-rests are not used.

  3. Click Apply and close the dialog.


The multi-rests now appear in the score.
