Fin26. Win10. In a string quartet there are occasional two and three bar segments with both left hand pizz. and arco stuff mixed together and written with stems up and down – rather difficult to read. I have tried to separate the two, placing the pizz. layer into the ossia bars. It copies

I would never touch the Ossia tool. It is a holdover from an earlier version of the Matrix, and is very difficult to kill. A better way is to add another staff to your part, resize it if you want to, and use the Force Hide and Collapse staff style on it everywhere that you don’t need it. At
