I'm entering some fiddle music into Guitar Pro 7.5 and trying to handle a second section.
At the beginning of the second section, the bar is short (only two eighth notes) just like an anacrusis, but Guitar Pro flags it for having too few notes. I tried adding a dotted half rest before the two eighths and that fixes the problem of too few notes, but when the piece plays back, it has a long pause between the first and second sections.
Is there some music notation that I can use to say "it's ok that this bar is short a few notes"? Or instead, can I add some kind of rest that is ignored?
UPDATE: I found my answer in this question.
