I hope everyone is weathering this present crisis as best they can.
Rests. I know that there are a number of rules on how to use rests in a composition and I have been reading up on them. When MuseScore inputs the rests as the music is being entered, are they automatically correctly written, i.e. in terms of not extending over the beat and so forth, or is that something that needs to adjusted on a case-by-case basis? I haven't gone over my compositions in any detail yet, so I just want to know what the default is. If MuseScore does not correct for rest placement automatically, is there software that can accomplish this? I intend to go through all the rests in my compositions using the guides I've found online, but I was wondering if there was some way of double-checking my work.
As always, thanks for any help on this. I know that there are various opinions on how to handle rests, but I guess I'm trying to understand the most commonly used approach. I have looked at the handbook and gone through older posts, so if this has been discussed before I would appreciate being directed to those discussions. There may also be options in the software that I've overlooked.
