Staff tool icon

Noteman says: See Working with staves and systems for a step-by-step tutorial overview.

Use the Staff tool to edit staff-specific characteristics. For example, you can show or hide certain musical elements in the staff such as measure numbers, expression markings, time signatures and so on using the Staff Attributes dialog box. Staff Styles allow you to specify these settings to a particular region of an individual staff. You can also edit and create groups of staves; use the Group Attributes dialog box to define groups of instruments in the score and for part extraction, add a bracket to a group and specify how the barline appears on the grouped staves.

When you click the Staff tool, the Staff menu appears that contains many commands for working with staves and groups of staves, such as applying customized staff attributes, adding and changing staff groups, hiding empty staves, and so on. See Staves.
