Multi-measure rest markup

Markups attached to a multi-measure rest will be centered above or below it. Long markups attached to multi-measure rests do not cause the measure to expand. To expand a multi-measure rest to fit the markup, use an empty chord with an attached markup before the multi-measure rest. Text attached to an empty chord in this way is left-aligned to the position where the note would be placed in the measure; however since in that case the length of the text determines the measure length itself, the text will appear to be centered.
