Version 3.3.4 / Windows 10

There's something buggy with the "Show invisible" function after Save

1) Load this test file (quarter notes with a few different lines): test lines.mscz
2) Select these lines and hide them (with "V" or in the Inspector "Set invisible")
3) In View, uncheck "Show invisible".
4) Save, Close, Restart: test save - Reload.mscz

5) In View again, check "Show invisible" again.

Expected result (as in version 2): the lines reappear in grey.

Current Result: nothing happens.

6) To make them reappear, you must, for example, add something to your score (articulation, breath, etc.) or change a pitch note etc.

Title Totally hidden lines do not respond, after Save, to the "Show Invisible show" feature Totally hidden lines do not respond, after Save, to "Show Invisible" feature

Ah, great Dmitri, thanks for this PR.
I thought this issue was completely forgotten. And yet, I met her again yesterday, and it's just the kind of surprising thing, which may seem like a small thing, but it's not really, because it ends up really annoying and reduces the experience of the program.

Yes, this is the issue that was the original reason of #284619: Show invisible doesn't work for certain elements until next layout, but with the recent versions invisible tablature ties do not get displayed with "show invisible" at all and require that showing them is chosen in staff settings. This may be a result of the change discussed here to fix some other tablature issues, but I didn't actually check that.

For #290041: Show invisible does not show all elements after an edit, until next relayout, this patch indeed seems to fix displaying invisible elements for that score.
