Adding part to just 1 system

Postby surfinboy » Sun Mar 10, 2019 4:40 pm

I have a general lead sheet with just 1 part for 90% of the song, but I want to add notation for a guitar part just for the first 4 measures (1 system) of a song. So you'd see 2 parts for measures 1-4, and then just 1 part for the remainder of the song. How would I do this?

There may be another way, but I think the normal way to do this would be to set up two staves throughout and then to hide the second stave (via the Staff menu) on all but the first system.
