I have a piece for choir and strings, in three ‘sections’. For the middle section, the strings are tacent, so I don’t want them showing in the Full Score, but I do want the parts to show the rests, so that they don’t come steaming in with Part 3…!
What’s the best way to achieve this? I presume each section should be a different flow?
The settings for Hiding Staves is for each Layout (Score, Parts), rather than each Flow, which would be ideal. However, I don’t think I can hide the strings when empty, because they have lengthy rests in Flows 1 and 3, which I don’t want hidden in the Score.
Hope this is clear:
Section 1: Strings and Choir (String staves showing even when just rests.)
Section 2: Just choir, Strings not showing in Score, but rests showing in String Parts.
Section 3: Strings and Choir again.
