I'm using Finale 2012, wizard setup with the Big Band template. Section F , 12 measures long, has a simple repeat. There are notes in the first measure, so I expect an 11 measure multimeasure rest. Instead, on the Alto 1 and Alto 2 parts, I get a 10 multimeasure rest and a single measure with rests after it. I have used Edit-Clear All Items which made no difference. Is there a sfix?
There can be several culprits that may break a multimeasure rest:
1) In the Measure Attributes there is the option “Break a Multimeasure Rest”.
2) An expression can be set to “Break Multimeasure Rests”.
3) Also, an applied staff style (e. g. Slash Notation) can prevent a multimeasure rest, even if the measure contains no music.
