Rehersal Letters and Multiple Rests

Perhaps this has already been discussed and I've missed it, but this seems like a major omission: When multiple-measure rests are figured on a dynamic part and there is a rehearsal letter above the first empty bar, the software omits the first bar from the multiple-measure rest. So if I have a part with 8 bars of rest at letter A, the dynamic part will show a single measure with a whole rest in it at letter A, followed by a 7-measure rest. While this is technically accurate, it looks sloppy and makes it harder than it needs to be when counting bars of rest. The dynamic part should simply have the rehearsal letter above an 8-bar multiple-measure rest.

I'm using the newest build of Notion 5, but I've noticed this problem since I started using Notion with version 4. Perhaps there's something I'm not doing right...

Hi Valor77 - Just wondering whether you or anyone else has come up with a solution or work-around to this problem. It does make counting more confusing for musicians, and frustrates the horn section in my funk band!
