Condensing: Force 2 players on same staff

I have a question about condensing:

Is there a method to force Dorico to always condense two players onto one single staff, but still let Dorico deside on everything else (eg. keeping voices saparate or amalgamating them) on a phrase-by-phrase basis?
I’ve already created a custom condensing group, but Dorico still sometimes puts them on two separate staves.

As I see it, I can add a condensing change and activate manual condensing, but then I’d also have to decide on stem direction etc. which I would prefer Dorico to handle.

Well, nevermind.

There was a breathing mark in only one of the players that prohibited Dorico to condense those two players…
