I want to have a tenor trombone part use tenor clef as its primary clef. (This is standard in many orchestral scores.) There is no option to use tenor clef as the default clef for trombone when I add the instrument, so I just changed the clef at the first bar of the score. However, if I use the Hide Empty Staves option, this prevents the trombone from hiding on the first system, even if the trombone does not play at all on this system; the only thing inputed on the part is the tenor clef.
Is there a way to fix this so that the part will properly hide, but the tenor clef will still be in place when the trombone first enters?
I don’t want to just have a clef change at the beginning of the first system that uses the trombone, as that would have a clef change in the middle of rests in the trombone part, rather than the part having a tenor clef from the start.
