Not hiding empty staves correctly

Post by neldorling »

Disclaimer: I have posted this before but have been disapproved as off topic/duplicate without being told the exact reason or pointed to the original topic where this issue is refuted/explained. I have searched the forum for threads about hiding empty staves and wasn't able to find any that would be at least similar.

In the attached score, I hide empty soprano solo staff. In the beginning, it works as expected; between bars 20-29 the empty staff is not hidden; then, on bar 30 it is hidden again.

Is there a way to force Dorico to hide bars 20-29 as well?

There is something in those bars. Simply select those bars in that stave (in Write mode) and hit Delete or Backspace.

It was. Banging my head against the table that I didn't come up with this myself. Thank you!

Anyway, maybe some notification about this would be helpful?

Well yeah, it’s weird. Normally there would be a signpost if something was hidden, unless it had been hidden via some sort of backdoor (and there are a few possibilities there). Did this originate as a MusicXML file?
