There’s a video by Anthony Hughes – “Smart Staff Management in Dorico Pro”, in which he demonstrates hiding individual bars on a staff “at any point” for any length. His most striking example shows at 1’06”.
Trouble is he doesn’t explain how to do it in any way that I can follow. I see that he chooses Edit/Staff/ and seems to go down to Manual staff visibility, but this can blank out an entire staff, not bars within it. He doesn’t mention whether it’s in write or engrave modes although the latter seems unlikely.
Please can you give more detail – The path to get to the option and how to select a bar to blank out, then do it?
It’s a scoring technique in some modern compositions.
Any help would be most appreciated.
