Hi. I’ve seen topics about hiding staves but I still have questions.
I already know that I can go to Layout Options → Vertical Spacing → Hide empty staves: After first system. And that to hide only a few instruments (ex: percussion), I can select all other instruments to be excluded from hide empty staves.
Additionally, if I want to manually hide staves, I have to create system breaks, double click, choose the staves to be hidden, and on the next one double click and reset.
However, here are my questions
1) if I want to hide empty staves throughout the score ONLY IF all staves from a group are empty (example: all brass instruments are empty), how can I do this?
2) If I am manually hiding staves, is there a way I can prevent non-empty staves to be hidden? This is particularly important to avoid letting a stave with music written hidden.
3) Is there a way to hide staves manually without creating system/frame breaks? Sometimes I want to change the system breaks I did, and the score becomes very disorganized. For example, on the picture below, I just deleted the system break on the second page, and this happened:
