hide line in part of score

• Oct 19, 2020 - 12:46

Hi, in the sample score attached there are two parts; the first part is for 4 voices, the second for 5. Is it possible to hide or remove the empty line (2) in the first part only? and if so, how? It seems that the "hide when emtpy" option in the :staff/part properties" dialog box only works when the line is empty everywhere.

It is normal practice not to hide empty staves in the first system so that the complete instrument line up is obvious. However, if you really want to do hide an empty stave in the first system, you can untick the box "don't hide empty staves in first system" in the [Format]>[Style]>[Score] dialogue.
