Imported MIDI piano, wish to split and tweak for flute/guitar, but staffs appear to be linked

Can you "de-link" linked staffs? I want to make the top (previously treble/R.H.) staff the flute, and the bottom (previously bass/L.H.) staff the guitar. It appears that importing MIDI piano causes a data linkage between these staffs, and I can't figure out how to break this link.

Right-click --> "Staff Properties" --> Change Instrument ... doesn't work: It changes *both* staffs (linked top/bottom) to the selected instrument.

So, back to the question: How to "de-link" these staffs?


I (type);
Add instruments: flute and guitar;
Copy and paste the measures in the new staves;
I (type);
delete the old instruments (piano).
Does it work?
