Single-System Occurence of a Staff
I've searched the forums for a similiar problem, and have found none, so here I go.
I'm currently in the process of creating a complete typeset score of Holst's "Planets" and, while working on Venus I've encountered a section where there is an introduced solo cello staff. This staff exists only for a single system at a time. See attachment 1
The only solution thus far is to create another instrument and do the very clunky process of hiding every empty staff, placing invisble notes on the empty staves you wish to keep, and only put notes on these individual systems with the Cello Solo staff. Otherwise, I can condense the two staves for cello into a single staff, which gets a bit ugly. This is my current solution. See attachment 2
It would be nice to extend an instrument with an extra staff for specific systems without having to do complex workarounds. Any easier solutions would be greatly appreciated.
