Custom braces and brackets

Hello Community,

is there a way to enter braces and brackets anywhere i like and combine instruments of different types with a bracket or are there plans to add this feature?
I know i can set up a lot in engraving options, but i really want to put a bracket where i want and want to also give it a label like “optional”

Any chance?

There is no way to do this at the moment. We are planning to add features to edit bracketing and bracing soon, but this will not allow you to change the staff labelling freely as well; the existing mechanism for changing staff labelling should be sufficient – you can either edit the name of the instrument, or (if using a section player) you can use a divisi change to temporarily change the label of an instrument.
