Rests are considered notes without having pitch.
Rests can be inserted in various ways:
- using the rest menu
- use the shortcut <r> to insert a rest with currently selected duration on the button bar
When needed, rests can be moved up or downwards to accommodate 2 parts on one staff by using <+> or <->
Multi-rests may be used in single voice scores. Expanded multi-rests are shown with staccatissimo mark in edit mode.
'Soft' rests - as added automatically to ensure all parts in a score are of equal length = are shown grayed.
