Hide Empty Staves feature doesn't apply to Clef or Key changes if no notes are present in the system.
MS 3.5.2, Windows 10
I'm not certain if this is a bug, or the way it should actually work based on Gould, but figured I would put it out there:
In the attached score at Page 103/Measure 355, the middle of Bassoon III has a Clef change.
Hide Empty Staves is enabled, however the Bassoon III stave is set to "Hide When Empty - Never" in the Staff/Part Properties.
If "Hide When Empty" is set to Auto, the Bassoon III stave no longer displays in that system.
If a local key change is added instead of the Clef change, the same effect is noted.
Is this the desired effect as per Gould?
It would be easy enough to work around by adding an invisible/not played note, but that's not the question here.
