This are two questions, but they came up together.
I do not understand the way brackets are treated when condensing is on.
I made some bracket changes - a main bracket for Trumpets and Trombones, a sub bracket
for each instrument group. Custom condensing groups exist for trombone 1/2 and trombone 3/4.

After condensing, the Trumpets (condensed as expected to one stave, nothing to condense btw.)
lose their sub-bracket and are thrown out of the main bracket with the trombones.
No bracket at all. It does not matter if there is a custom condensing group override for Trumpet 1/2/3 or not.

-> I tried to extend the main bracket in engrave mode manually (selected the trombones brackets and dragged the upper
end up to the trumpet stave) but dorico won’t let me do that.
-> On the other hand, the subbrackets of condensed Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2 don’t get lost (as expected).
So whats wrong with the trumpets?
When I define only Trumpet 1/2 as custom condensing group, everything’s seems fine.

I was wondering if I could find a workaround with a condensing change but found that
- not only in the location shown in 4. in the jpg, but along all flows in the complete project -
the controls will get enabled only for the first condensing group in the project, the flutes.
Could not find a bar where it would be otherwise. No other checked checkbox will enable them.
Here in the example, the default trumpet group (N.B. strange: ordered 1-3-2) is selected, and the controls stay disabled.
I.E. I cannot create condensing changes for none of the condensing groups, default or custom,
with exception of the Flutes, in the complete score.
Bug? Corrupted project file?
