Notes and Rests (Hide) Plug-in, Notes and Rests (Show) Plug-in

How to get there

  1. Choose the Selection tool icon and select a region from which you wish to hide or show notes from all entries.
  2. Choose Plug-ins > Note, Beam, and Rest Editing > Notes and Rests (Hide) or Notes and Rests (Show).

What it does

The plug-in allows you to hide all notes and rests in the current selection. You can also use it to make all hidden entries visible again. This plug-in is equivalent to pressing “O” in Speedy Entry to hide a note or a rest.

Hidden entries are not printed and do not play back, but they can be used to influence the positioning of other musical items. A typical usage is to hide rests in contrapuntal keyboard music.
