Yes. It's now called Show Empty Staves.
That I know but it doesn't work in the same way, actually

Or "Hide Empty Staves" :-)
But at any rate, it's in there (Staff Menu).
If you’ve applied a staff style to it, it’s no longer empty.

Show Staff Styles
Show Staff Style Names

it is exactly that (both ways) that doesn't work...
actually I solved by asking Finale official support...
