Staff labels on condensed staves

Staff labels on condensed staves must reflect all the players included on the staff. Dorico for iPad automatically consolidates similar instrument names in staff labels on condensed staves but always shows all the required player numbers.

On condensed staves containing different types of instruments, all required instrument names are shown.

Because condensing can change frequently, staff labels on condensed staves can vary from one system to another. The staff labels for condensed divisi staves reflect the divisions at the start of the system and show instrument names.

Dorico for iPad also shows player labels above/below condensed staves to identify the players to which notes on condensed staves belong, as condensing can change within a single system. For condensed divisi staves, Dorico for iPad shows the player labels “div.”, with any required qualifications, and your set unison indication where each division starts and ends respectively.
