Shanghaiceltic -

You can tweak the pickup bar pretty easily, but I don't think (without looking it up) that you'll be able to get rid of the rests in the final measure of a "part" (without inserting a visible change in time signature, perhaps). If you only want to write the "A" part of a tune, you could hide the rests, as mentioned above, but they'll still be there in the playback.

Some of the more sophisticated programs would let you put a change in time signature in and "hide" it so it doesn't display or print, but I don't believe that Print Music is quite that good.

There's another thread that's been up recently on "writing scores" or some such where the problem of being able to "put two tunes on the same page" was being discussed. If you hide the rests at the end of one "part" you're - effectively - starting a second tune when you go into the "B" part, and there are relatively few (mostly expensive) programs that will let you do that.

There's always hope - until you've finished reading the whole instruction book - and even then you might find something they forgot to mention.
