Deleting extra/ossia staves

You can delete extra and ossia staves so they are no longer shown in any layout, but without automatically deleting the music on them. For example, if you had previously added extra staves for a passage but no longer want them.


  1. In Write mode, select the signposts at the start/end of the extra/ossia staves you want to delete.
  2. Press Backspace or Delete.


The selected extra/ossia staves are removed and no longer appear in any layouts in which that player appears.


If you delete staves without deleting the music on them, that music still exists and is included in playback. If you later add staves at the same position, the music reappears.
