May I propose that "multi measure rests" is replaced by
"full bar rests" or "full measure rests" in the manual
to avoid this common misconception.

Hello Paul,

Thanks for your answer. This is what I was looking for. I understood from
the manual that capitalization was only used for multi-measure rests, but
apparently I was wrong.

Can anyone tell me how to represent a full bar rest when using 'odd' time
e.g. in a 4/4 time a full rest is represented by r1 ,
in 2/4 time a full rest is r2 and in 3/4 it is r2.
But, what is a full rest in times like 5/4 7/4 12/4 7/8 etc.

Full bar rests should normally be capitalized - they are centered that
way.  There are many numerical possibilities but I do:

R4*5 R4*7 R4*12 R8*7

and I do R4*3 instead of R2.  Except for the reversal of the numbers
these are closer to what they represent.
