I’m sorry to ask this as I’m sure this must have been answered before, but I was unsuccessful with a forum/Google search, so here goes: Can I hide the clef, key signature and time signature at the start of a flow? (Other than painting a white rectangle over it in Acrobat?)
Why do I want to do this (in case this problem can be solved differently)?
I have a piece that is played D.C. with a little variation on the repeat: A four-bar section is replaced with a five-bar section (with different chord changes). So (I suppose) this can’t be done using Ossias. My next attempt was to fake an Ossia by creating a new flow with the five different bars, add a new music frame at the relevant position on the page, scale that “fake ossia” to 75 % and align the bars with the to-be-replaced bars, all of which worked beautifully – except for the fact that I get another reminder that this piece is in 3/4 and D major where I don’t need it.
I’ve tried changing the color of the key signature (etc.) to make it invisible, but that didn’t make any difference (and of course the objects would still take up space if it did, so the system would extend unnecessarily to the left).
Is there a way to do this, other than copying/pasting the entire piece instead of a repeat?
