 Well, I'm completly amazed by scheme function, which I'm totally unable to build. What I'd have done instead is : \score {   \new Score <<         \new Staff  <<       s4-\markup{LilyPond default, rests in both voices.}       \relative c'' { c4 d e r | r2  e4 g | R1 } \\       \relative c'' { c4 b a r | r a g2   | R1 }     >>     \new Staff  <<       s4-\markup{Merge rests as per standard notation practice.}       \relative c'' { c4 d e b\rest | r2  e4 g | R1 } \\ %2 b\rest will merge at the same place...       \relative c'' { c4 b a b\rest | r a g2   | R1 }     >>     >>   \layout {} } which lead to merged rests... but it is a very secular way to do it !

It is very usefull indeed, but isn't there a more general way to merge rests. It's a lot of code for a task, that I think is often needed. This code is limited to two voices, but I already have a score laying around here with three voices. I know about hiding rests, but then I'll have to change the position of the remaining rests to the center of the staff, like the example of the snippet shows. I'm quite a beginner, so I think that's pretty advanced stuff already. Any ideas for an alternative to the snippet?
