Group brackets/braces

Postby motet » Sun Feb 03, 2019 8:12 pm

I have a part that contains piano with grand staff and a few other instruments.

I have "Show bracket if group contains only one staff" unchecked, but I want the bracket hidden if the group only contains the grand staff, i.e. I want the square bracket gone from this (but the curly brace to remain):

Any way to do this?

I can delete this bracket in an optimized staff system... (but I have an old version - Fin 2009)..+

That seems to delete it everywhere now.

I ended up making separate groups around where the piano is the only one playing, which was practical since it was localized. I would like to see "Show bracket if group contains only one staff" expanded to "Show bracket if group contains only one staff or group," though.
