Hi everyone and Happy New Year!
This is something that comes up a lot for me, and maybe there’s something I don’t understand about dynamics and group behaviour. I find hairpins often end up attached somewhere bars ahead of where I’m working, even when I originally entered it as a much shorter duration. Sometimes I need to make a change, and when I ungroup a hairpin, it suddenly becomes 3 times as long. Then when I shorten it and reattach to the group, I seems to reattach itself to the same distant barline. I don’t think I’m explaining this well but the gif demonstrates what I mean.
