Hide system separators on one page only

Postby ajrobb » Mon Apr 01, 2019 11:37 pm

I have a piano-vocal score with system separators, but one page out of forty is solo piano. How can I remove/hide the system separators on that page only?

If I understand correctly, you can hide the empty vocal staves, by selecting the whole score (or just all the staves on that page) and using Ctrl + Alt + Shift + H (if Windows).

Because this is a global setting, I think the only way to do it is use a white graphic to cover the separators on the page with no vocal line.

The white/blank image seems to appear behind the system separators no matter what I do, whether I set the appearance order to 1 or 32 - is there a way to bring it forward?

Thanks so much for the help!

I tried this myself and you're right, it doesn't work. Perhaps because they are not objects.

In that case the only solution is to insert them where you DO want them either as symbols (there's a suitable symbol in the zymbols menu) or as graphics, manually in the score. It's a global setting so I can't see any way of even selecting individual ones.

Since I want the separators everywhere except that single page, I think I'm just going to make two PDFs, one with separators and one without, and then swap in the page without separators into Acrobat. It's a kludge, but seems like the most elegant option at this point.
