Per-flow notation options for rests

You can find per-flow options controlling how rests are positioned and notated, and when rests are shown, on the Rests page in Notation Options.

For example, you can change whether bar rests are shown in additional voices, when dotted rests are permitted, and the default positions of rests in different contexts.

You can open Notation Options in any of the following ways:

  • Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-N in any mode.

  • Choose Write > Notation Options in Write mode or Setup > Notation Options in Setup mode.

  • Click Notation Options in the Flows panel in Setup mode.

You can then click Rests in the page list.
