How create a short "starting measure"

Super simple request:

Let's say in a 4/4 score, I simply want to have a short starting measure with let's say 2 notes, then have a bar line and start the rest of my score....exactly how can i do this without the rests automatically showing up before my 2 starting notes?

Look at this file as an example

    What you are talking about is called a "pickup". If you go to the "pickup" tool in the toolbar, you will see a Checkbox labeled "Hide initial rests"!

    Hope this helps!
