Hiding single staff from a player's multiple multi-staff instruments

Hello everyone!
I hope you’re doing great. I’ve tried looking for this in the forums, with no success. I’m trying to hide one staff from a multi-staff instrument. Please take a look:

As you can see, the player “Keyboard” plays multiple instruments. So far, so good. For reference, you can see how I’ve hidden the lower “Coro Gospel” staff with no problem.

Here’s what happens when I go to Manual Staff Visibility:

Apparently it’s not showing my piano staves, but my player’s? I’ve tried hiding that, but the 2 staves go away. What am I missing? Please help.

In the very last section of Layout Options, in Vertical Spacing > Staff Visibility, there is a switch “Allow individual staves of multi-staff instruments to be hidden”. (Note that this operates per layout.) Does this address the need?

It doesn’t, unfortunately. You can tell that it’s already allowing that by looking at the “Coro Gospel” (Gsp.) which is a multi staff part with one staff hidden.

Would you mind attaching the project?

I believe there is a limitation with staff visibility and instrument changes. It works fine with the Coro Gospel since that is the only instrument that Player holds.
