Hiding/Showing ossia staves

By default, ossia staves appear in all layouts. You can change the layouts in which ossia staves are shown, for example, if you want ossia staves to appear in the part layout but not in the full score.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-L to open Layout Options.
  2. In the Layouts list, select the layouts in which you want to hide/show ossia staves.

    By default, the layout currently open in the music area is selected when you open the dialog. You can select other layouts by using the selection options in the action bar, Shift-clicking adjacent layouts, and Ctrl/Cmd-clicking individual layouts.

  3. Click Staves and Systems in the category list.
  4. In the Ossias and Extra Staves section, activate/deactivate Show ossias.
  5. Click Apply, then Close.


Ossias are shown in the selected layouts when Show ossias is activated, and hidden when it is deactivated.
