[BUG] Tempo equation broken after a suppressed playback tempo marking


This is a bug in Dorico 5 (still present in the latest patch just released), and not present in Dorico 4. The bug is as follows:

  • Enter a tempo marking with playback suppressed so as not to change the tempo to the default q=72 (eg. ‘Vamp’).
  • Enter a time signature change and a tempo equation.
  • The tempo equation will not work and tempo will revert back to q=72 when it hits the time change.
  • Following tempo equations are also broken.

This is reproducible with a new file, and I’ve attached one showing this.
I know I can work around this in a couple of ways, but wanted to bring this to your attention.

Many thanks,
