Change/hide abbrev. staff name for specific systems

Postby billrow » Sat Feb 09, 2019 9:50 pm

I am attaching a screen shot, as this might be a little hard to explain. Sorry about the small size, but had to fit it to the 1024 limitation. Also had to cut out page 9 in the example. By way of some context, this is from a song that is a debate number in a musical play. There is back-and-forth between the four candidates (indicated as "Cand.") and the audience ("Aud."). For most of the piece, to save space I use a single treble clef for each of those, with note that mens' part are sung down 8va, since there is little part splitting. But at the end the parts split, so I am splitting into treble/bass, with grouping and brackets. The problem is I would like to have the treble clefs after the split labelled "Suzanne" (the only female candidate) and "Women", as shown in the screencap. But I still want to use "Cand." and "Aud." for those staffs through the first part of the piece. Is there a way to change those label names just for certain systems/pages? Or even a way to hide them for those sections, and I could add the labels I want using text entries? Hope this makes sense; and thanks for any help!

Woo-hoo! That did it! Don't think I would have ever stumbled across that. Thanks, Zuill. You're my hero!
