Uh-oh, I’m back again. Sorry about that.
I set up a score to hide unused staves with exceptions. It worked throughout except on the middle page shown in the screen shot and once more further through the score. The only reason I can think of is that the very few staves made Dorico think or hope that another chunk of staves of a similar number would follow and would appear as a second “system?” beneath.
Point is, I’d be happy enough to ‘open out’ these staves in Engrave. But have I missed some setting that would do that automatically for me?
And if I do have to open them out, can I copy the separation settings to the other page this happens in the score.
The zoom level in the screenshot was set to 75% to show several pages together.
Thank you for your time.
