Hide specific empty staves, but not all

Working on a concerto full score…I don’t want to hide empty staves except for a lengthy cadenza. In that place only, I’d like to hide empty staves for about 24 bars to save pages, then return to showing all staves, whether empty or not. Is this possible? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, marjoriewbecker. Unfortunately at the moment, hiding empty staves is an all or nothing thing: you can enable it via the Vertical Spacing page of Layout Options, but it will affect all systems. To prevent a staff from hiding when hide empty staves is enabled, you can add e.g. a text item to the staff and colour it white or make it transparent.

We expect to add greater control over this in future versions.
