I like to insert two bars of rests at the beginning of my BIAB songs so that the bar numbers will match my DAW bar numbers.

I've recently begun using the new Utility Tracks in BIAB 2022. They generate the tracks as expected, except they ignore my two bars of rests. They begin playing on Bar #1. The regular tracks (the original BIAB tracks) do not start until bar 3 (which is what I want).

Any insight into this issue that anyone may have would be greatly (and gratefully) appreciated.

All the best,
