Empty bars not hiding...

• May 12, 2020 - 16:06

Not sure what the problem is here, I might be overlooking something but I have "hide empty bars" selected and yet the empty bars are still visible...
Thanks for the help.

If all staves within a system are empty, then MuseScore will force show the first staff. Otherwise someone reading the score won't be aware that time should be passing during playback there.

Ah, I see now that you're using drumset as an intro in-between. In that case I propose 3 possible options to make this work.
1. Use measure stretch
2. Use a fixed spacer to overlay the staves
3. Use measure stretch and leading space offset on the first measure rest which can be made invisible.

I've done each method once in the attached sample. Personally I'd go with option 1 as it is the only option that remains musically true to what is happening.
