Musescore 3.0's new cutaway staves feature is a step forward for users like me who create replica scores containing ossias.

However, there are some improvements which could be made, namely :-

  • Enabling clefs to be visible (or of course invisible) at the beginning of a cutaway staff. This is currently only done if the cutaway's first measure is also the first measure of the system.
  • Enabling brackets to be indented (again, optionally) where the cutaway's first measure is not the system's first measure.
  • Enabling the left hand barline of the cutaway's first measure to be visible (and invisible) if it is not the system's first measure.

See the attached score for an example.
