Hiding numbers in staff labels on subsequent staves

Hi there,
Sorry if this has been addressed somewhere — I spent some time searching but maybe I just didn’t have the right search terms.

I want to have the numbers in the staff labels on the first system:

But then, on subsequent staves, since the notes are always labeled with which instrument is playing, the numbers in the staff labels seem superfluous:

Is there a way not to show the 1/2/3 and 1/2 labels in this example in the staff labels? Or is it best practice to still show them in the staff labels even with the note labels? Thanks!

Unless I’m very much mistaken, I don’t think we have an option to hide the player numbers from the staff label, so I think you are resigned to them appearing in any case. I think it’s helpful, particularly since in e.g. your image from bar 20, clarinet 3 only appears in the staff label, and would otherwise be “missing” from that system.
