I'm transcribing an aria from a couple manuscripts, one of which gives a couple of variants for the ornamentation of the vocal line. One of these variants lasts through half of a bar, so I used the split measure function plus the ossia function to get what I needed. Most of it looks good, with one exception: the horns, which are resting for the entire measure, now have two whole rests in their measure. Anyone know a workaround so I can have a whole rest right in the middle of their bar? I've thought that the solution would be to hide the rests, insert a "free-floating" rest as text, and then maneuver it where I need it, but I can't seem to figure out how to access the full symbol list to insert a whole rest in that manner (I'm used to finale where you just go up to "text/insert symbol" and the whole symbol list is there).
