I have a score with 20-23 staves, depending on the vocal voicings. I need a "Select Staff" command that selects the "Violin-Viola" staff thru the end of the score. So far, the only thing I've found that works (thru trial and error) is "Select staff 17 to end", where staff 17 is actually the "Violin-Viola" staff. Is there any way to use the staff name itself instead of the staff number in the syntax of this command? The problem is, sometimes the Violin-Viola staff is actually staff 18 or 19, so the script won't work right.

thanks!
