Staff names

Each staff in a document can have a full name (such as Trumpet 1 in B), which appears in the first system of the document, and a second name (often abbreviated, such as Tpt. 1), which appears on all subsequent systems. These staff names are set in the Score Manager and positioned using the Staff tool.

Multi-staff instruments, such as piano and marimba, are defined as staff groups. They do not have individual staff names, but rather use group names for display.
