I could try that. But would it be possible to request a feature that allows
manual and automatic staff changes at the same time?
Well, if you manage to describe how that should work. If you imagine yourself in the role of the autochanger, how would you react if somebody else did some extra staff changes every now and then. When should you start doing your ordinary job after such a change?

What might make sense, in such a situation, is the possibility to temporarily turn off the autochange functionality in the middle of a score and then turn it on again some measures later. I wouldn't be surprised if that's already very easy to do, since most of the functionality is implemented in Scheme.

The only problem I have with this is that I don't think that manual staff changes are supposed to work with autochange. I could force things to work, but the known issues and warnings says that if you want high quality output, staff switches should be specified manually. And yeah, I realize that for your 500 page fugue that sucks, but it's as easy as defining a variable,
csu = \change Staff = "up",
and then using that variable when you want to have a staff change, \csu.

Okay, I've put the snippet in the quote. Basically the first change shows the \change not working; the second one shows the \change working. Regardless,
both produce errors in the log.

\version "2.13.7"

\new PianoStaff {
                        \new Staff = "up" {
                                        \autochange \relative c' {
\change Staff = "up" r16 b e g \change Staff = "down" fis c b a g

\change Staff = "xxxx" doesn't seem to apply to rests, even when in written as b16\rest instead of just r16. I'm not sure what other information should be put on, there's the rest of this thread, or just ask me if you need more
