Can't edit a changed instrument in the mixer.

In my piece, I changed the instrument from oboe to metallic synthesizer. I then went into the mixer to change its settings and I wasn't able to.


If you look closely, you will see the arrow (-->) at the top left of the Oboe's vertical volume control is a little darker than the instruments without an instrument change. Click that arrow and both the Oboe and Metallic synthesizer will be revealed.

I thought a metallic synthesizer would be a pitched instrument, so the change from obo to metallic synthesizer is a pitched instrument to a pitched instrument. If the metallic synthesizer is in the unpitched instruments, then you need to know you cannot change between pitched and unpitched instruments in the same staff. You must use a different staff for both and hide empty staves to make it look like the same instrument in the score.
