More control over which measures are consider empty for the sake of "hide empty staves"
The "Hide empty staves" function doesn't hide staves containing only invisible notes. But when creating cue notes you are adding invisible notes, thereby preventing the staff to be hidden. Very problematic because, if an instrument is silent for many bars, you often both want to hide it from the score and give him cue notes before re-entering. Cue notes will cause the staff to show earlier than intended (see image). Marked as a "major" issue because it effectively prevents from making independent layout choices in score and parts, which is fundamental.
Suggest adding an option to the "Hide empty staves" function:
- Hide emptys staves (default: off)
Don't hide empty svates in first system (default: off)
Always show bracked for single staff (default: off)
Hide staves with only invisble notes (default: off for old scores, for backwards compatibility, but on for new scores)
Only current workaround: double each instrument on two staves, one intended for the score (without cue notes), on intended for the part (with cue notes). Possible, but very cumbersome.
