Need to add bars, but not as multirests....

Postby blkhwks19 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 2:55 pm

I typically add bars using Ctrl+B, and these bars show up as single bars. However, recently I came back to a score I was working on, and needed to add some bars, but using Ctrl+B they all added as a single multi-rest bar. It's a single bar that has a big 10 over it to indicate 10 bars of rest. Why would this behavior change, and how do I get it to go back to adding individual bars instead of a multi-rest bar??

I'm using Sibelius 5.1. I know, its old... :)

Perhaps you accidentally turned Multirests on. The toggle for Multirests is Ctrl + Shift + M.

That was it, thanks! Must have bumped it when using Alt + Shift M to group bars into a system.
