How to force page turns for printing parts (but with gnat sized bug)
User Tip: To Force page turn, insert clef and key signature with visibility never at end of bar before page turn; force system break and exclude from bar count; insert whole rest with visibility never; insert new bar with visibility never and force system break; insert clef and key signature with default visibility.

This leaves an empty staff at the bottom of the page which players will ignore, or which can be used for text instructions or messages to the players.


The wrong measure number that appears at the beginning of the the empty staff appears to be a bug.

In the piece I was working on, the empty staff at the bottom of the page showed a measure number from the previous measure.

Why is that so bad?  You have inserted an extra measure which is excluded from the bar count so everything that follows on the next page will still be correct.  Maybe a text insert in the dummy measure "The real measure nn is at the end of the previous line.  Turn now."

It is not a terrible problem, and won't cause confusion; but still it isn't right.
