The multimeasure rest object

Type: Dictionary

Encodes a single multimeasure rest. The required attributes "start" and "duration" specify the multimeasure rest's location and length, respectively.

When rendering MNX into graphical notation, applications are expected to use the value of "duration" as the number above the rest. If the optional "label" attribute is provided, that must be used instead.
