When preparing a percussion part I want the percussionist, who has very long rests between notes, to be able to follow the timpani part, for his cues. I would like to therefore print both timp and percussion staves on a single page. But I only see how to print 1 staff on a page.
I know there is a lengthy workaround- add the 2nd staff to the percussion part and copy the timp part... but is there an easier way to have 2 "parts" show on the same page, kind of like a grand staff?

To clarify my request... this is my workaround- I saved the Active Part "Percussion I, and manually added a second staff to the score, then copied the timp part onto that second staff and made them cue notes (I could have left them full size...)

so now the percussionist, who has little to do, can use the timp as their cues (and other cues I inserted when there is little timp action.)

So my question is...Is there a way to create and print a multi-player (multi staff) extracted part more easily?

RTM,

To add another instrument to an existing part:
Select the desired part to contain the new instrument.
Click the Add Instrument button.
A pop-up menu appears with a list of all tracks/instruments.
Choose the desired track/instrument.
A sub part appears below the selected part.

Tried to find any reference to "Add Instrument" button in the Manual- must be pretty well hidden because that search found nothing. Looking at every option in score view I also do not see anything labeled Add Instrument. I do see an Insert Track button but that gives me a blank staff, not the instrument part as a cue to the player.
Can you be more specific, please?

Hi Pete,

I think this might work:

    Score Layout>Active Parts>Active Part, the fourth button

Yes, that works. Thank you. I never would have found it in the documentation.
