Condensing: remarked a2 when unnecessary

I’m having an issue where an A2 marking is relabelled immediately after it’s already been notated. Any thoughts on why this is happening?

Dorico looks at chunks of music separated by rests independently. It consider the quarter note the start of a new phrase, so it puts the a2. You can hide it with the properties panel.

Read the version history and/or watch the condensing video on the YouTube channel for more in-depth explanations.

Maybe there could be a setting “Don’t show condensing label when it is identical to the preceding one on the same system” but for now, manual hiding is indeed the way to go.

We cerrainly have some remaining tasks on our condensing backlog to try to reduce the number of player labels you see in situations like this.
