Insert single treble staff

The last time I used Sibelius, I took advantage of a feature whereby I could create a piano part and then delete one of the clefs, maintaining the sound. I wish that Dorico had this feature. At the moment, I am using a treble clef from the vocal section which works … until playback.

Are you looking for hide empty staves, including one staff of grand staff instruments?

Or in addition, removing staves?

And then bonus for if you ever do need to use an instrument’s staff but a different sound in playback, for whatever reason, you can route the instrument track corresponding to that staff manually to sounds in playback. Switch to Play mode, and edit the corresponding VST instrument such that the sound loaded into the channel used by the instrument is the sound you want to hear.

Also the instruments in the Sketch family make piano sounds by default.
