Deleting staves

• Sep 23, 2020 - 15:01

My score (attached) is based on the SATB choral template. At one place in the score (bars 49 to 80) I have a flute duet using the Soprano and Alto staves. The Tenor and Bass staves are not used for 32 bars, then the vocal parts return using all four staves.
Is it possible to delete the two blank T and B staves between bars 49 and 80 to save space?

I don't understand what you say you are seeing. If I check "Hide empty staves within systems" in Format>Style>Score, when there are two empty staves the brackets only span the remaining two stave. This is also what I see when I look at Claudio's version where he has done the same thing. Are you seeing something different when you try that with your original version?

If you don't want to see the bracket even when there are four non-empty staves, just click on it and delete it.
