Hiding empty staff - not working
I am trying to export a staff with a hidden measure at the end. Basically 3 instruments, the 3rd instrument has 4 fewer bars than the other two. For the lead sheet I dont want those empty bars to show up, for clarity and tidy formatting.
I can make all the elements on the measures invisible but even with...
"Hide when empty: Together with the “Hide empty staves” setting in Format→Style…→Score, this determines if the staff will be hidden when it is empty"
... selected the final measures are still printed.
I noticed this entry...
"Instrument: For instruments containing multiple staves, the staff is hidden only if all staves for that instrument are empty."
... is there a way to over ride that. Not sure what use that setting is. If all staves for an instrument were empty why would one bother putting it in a score?
Any help please.

Even with "Hide empty staves" one stave is shown if all staves are empty in that system

Create a blank white image large enough to cover the stave you want to hide and use that to cover it.
