As discussed in https://musescore.org/en/node/88841, it would be useful to have a 'visible' checkbox added in the instruments dialogue for each individual tab staff linked to a standard notatation staff. This would enable users who use those tab staves for verifying fingerings to make them invisible without deleting them when it comes time to export to PDF and print.

Issue created at the suggestion of Isaac Weiss.


Comments

Altered the title to included unlinked tab staves. These can also share the same instrument as a pitched staff line.

More broadly applicable title.

Fix typo.

Offhand, I can't actually think of a reason this wouldn't be simple to implement, at least with regard to the layout itself - no gotchas I can think of.

Well, no, I didn't say it could happen soon. It would introduce an incompatible file format change, so it wouldn't be possible to implement until MuseScore 4.

Adding a +1. When working on piano scores that occasionally expand to three staves (e.g. for one or two pages out of twenty, it would help to be able to hide the third stave to make editing less cumbersome, particularly to stop the desktop display from jumping around to show all staves at once.
