Would it be possible to have the option to hide and show instruments and be able to easily see their status in the score manager?

Luis Moreno,

 

I am not sure I understand.

 

Are you talking about Page View?

let say I just want to see the first violins part, and hide all the other in the page, something like that.

To do so (= viewing only the first violins part) there are several ways.

Which way is better, depends on your actual needs (= why only the first violins part).

Since I do not know the why, I can not (yet) be of much help.

 

1) You can view the linked part with the first violins.

2) You can create a Staff Set of only the first violins.

 

The better we understand, the better we can help.

 

What are you trying to achieve?

How are you trying to do it?

What happens when you do that?

What doesn’t happen that you expect to happen?

 

PS

You are talking about Page View - right?

Take a look at Staff Sets

I'm not an expert user and Finale have a lot of options. So if this wasn't a good idea I understand. I just watched a tutorial about Staff Sets and that is what I wanted to achieve, but it's somehow cumbersome to me.

I just thought that a more visual approach could be useful and simpler, an implementation like the one I'm suggesting could also be used to group/ungroup staves in the same manner, allowing to hide or show groups of layers as well.

It's just and idea, 👍

have a great day

Doesn't Jari have a JW plug-in to simplify this?

 

In addition, one could create a custom Part which had any set of staves one wished.
