combining empty measures

• May 17, 2020 - 18:01

After extracting parts, one part has a single empty measure followed by a 12 measure rest. I would to combine these to make a 13 measure rest but can't figure out how. Toggling M doesn't do it. thanks. Other sections in the same part successfully combined all contiguous empty measures.


There must be something there preventing the measures from being combined - a double bar, rehearsal mark, tempo mark, etc. Or you might have explicitly set it to break multiemeasure rests in Measure Properties. If that doesn't help you figure it out, please attach your score and we can assist better.

I did figure it out. In the previous measure I wanted a quick drop in volume after a decrescendo and wanted to put pp at the end of it so I attached it to the rest in the following measure. Instead I put pp as staff text, but even though the font says MSJazz it is different than the other ones, i.e. it is sans-serif.
