Good afternoon,
I am setting an interlude for a colleague. She has specified a full-measure 
centered rest, notated as a dotted half-rest. I have searched the documentation 
for several hours and cannot seem to figure out how to do this.
I want the rest in measure 2, but centered like the rest in measure 1.Advice?

BTW, I'm using Lilypond version 2.18.2.
Thanks!
Karen
