In a big band chart I am trying to print the trumpet parts. All 4 trumpets are set up identically in layouts - each player included in its own part and in the full score. But when I go to print, tpts 1 and 2 don’t appear in the preview window after selecting, and exporting to graphic pdf or to a laser printer doesn’t do anything. Tpts 3 and 4 appear in preview as expected and print normally. I have successfully printed tpts 1 and 2 before, and they look the same as tpts 3 and 4 in set-up, layouts, write and engrave mode. Any ideas what I may have messed up? ( i have saved closed and restarted dorico and pc to no avail) . Thanks (using pro - latest version)
I’m certain Daniel, et al, will ask for you to post the project here (stripped down, if you wish), or send it to him via email.
I have no ideas from just reading your description.
Yes, please attach the project here, or if you can’t or aren’t willing to do that, please email it to me at d dot spreadbury at steinberg dot de and I’ll take a look. Please include a link to this thread so I can remember what I’m supposed to look at.
Thanks Dan , I have emailed the file
SOLUTION: The problem was I somehow set the page range for those parts to a completely empty string, so no pages were set to print.
Select e.g. the ‘Trumpet 1’ part in the left-hand Layouts list in Print mode, then in the right-hand options panel, instead of ‘All Pages’ under ‘Job Type’ ‘page range’ was selected in error. Thanks to Daniel Spreadbury for the answer!

And thanks to Google I didn’t soil my underwear just now when I did the same and thought I’d lost my work…
