Hide Empty Staves Grand Staff

Version 01.06.00
Added 27 Sep 2012 (last updated 21 Feb 2020)

For use with Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x and Sibelius 21.x

For Sibelius version 7.1.3 and later only

Hides empty staves that are included in a passage selection. For instruments that are defined as having more than 1 staff (pianos, harps, etc) it will only hide empty staves if both staves are empty. (Sibelius itself hides all empty staves even for grand staff instruments).

If there is already a hidden staff for such an instrument that has another unhidden staff, the hidden staff will be unhidden.

There is no dialog for this plugin; it is intended to be a replacement for Hide Empty Staves when using instruments like a piano, and other than its special feature, it should act the same as Hide Empty Staves.

Updated 28 May 2018. Version 01.06.00. Multirest problem cleanup.
