To typeset a multimeasure rest (or a single measure, full measure rest), always use R instead of r. I guess this answers your question.


Quoting Tim Allman <address@hidden>:

After having used multirests many times in the past I have now stumbled over a
problem. Taking an example from the manual and storing it as HornPart.ly ...

\version "2.10.0"

hornNotes = \relative c {
 \time 2/4
 \set Score.skipBars = ##f
 r2*3 r4 f8 a cis4 f e d

\header {
 instrument = "Horn in F"

 \set Score.skipBars = ##t
 \transpose f c' \hornNotes

If Score.skipBars is ##f as above, the line starts with a bar containing a
half rest followed by two empty bars. The following bars with notes are
correct. If Score.skipBars is ##t, the line starts with a half rest and the
empty bars disappear.

I am running FreeBSD 6.1. The output from lilypond follows.
