In Notion 5, I want a piano part with lyrics (no separate vocal line). This is usually done with a grand staff that connects the bass and treble clef staves at the beginning and end of each line but does not draw the bar lines of every measure vertically between the two staves. Any ideas???

Hi Patrick,

there's not a way to do exactly what you want. You can't hide the adjoining barlines in a grand staff instrument. You can do a workaround, though this will not give you an adjoining end of system line (but will at the beginning): add two basic staffs from score setup, then make one treble and one bass. Hide/delete the instrument names in score setup. Go back to the score, lasso select with the mouse over both staves, right click, and make a bracket group
