So I opened the Staff Settings dialog for the Soprano staff and selected the Soprano instrument:

Unfortunately, after that the Soprano staff in the score is still playing back as Piano instrument! Why? How can I play the Soprano staff with a Soprano voice?

PS: Maybe there is a misconfiguration with the Notion Instruments? For example, when viewing the Notion Guitar Instruments in the Staff configuration, some instruments are grayed out:

PPS: I suppose the grayed out instruments are those which must be purchased as additional sound libraries? Is this correct? If yes, then it would be smart to display a Purchase dialog when clicking on such a grayed out instrument ...

Notion does not come with any vocal sounds.  All sounds that are set up for SATB will be played back with a piano.  The SATB staves are there for notation purposes only.  As for the grayed out instruments, you are correct.  Those instruments are available for sale on our web site here:
