Editing a chart from a friend he sent as MusicXML.  So far the chart is fine, but I cannot create multimeasure rests.  Any workarounds out there?  Thank you in advance

It's likely that the file contains "real" whole rests rather than "default" whole rests which are required to make MM Rests. Select all then run the plugin "Note Beam and Rest Editing > Change to Default Whole Rests". That should allow MM Rest creation.

How do I add the several multimeasure rests, eg, 1/7/1/8/2/8 into one multimeaure rest?

If I understand you, try selecting and delting the existing rests, and recombine the measures and create a new one. If I misunderstand, please give more details, or a screenshot.

Certain measure functions (double bar lines, rehearsal letters, certain tempo expressions) create multi-measure rest breaks. Not sure whether you can remove these with the Measure Tool. I do not even try.

The solution is to break the series of multimeasure rests, then format all measures with the same delete or rest and THEN create anew. Result is one multimeasure rest.
