Consolidated rests keep changing

I can’t count how many times I have painfully corrected the rests on those 7/4 bars to look consolidated, just to find that as soon as I close the program they return to their ‘half + quarter’ state.

Is there a way to “lock” a layout to prevent Dorico from ‘fixing’ what I did?

Thank you

Have you forced the durations of those rests?

I had, yes, with the little clamp icon. I will try to set it at the Properties, perhaps that’s more permanent…
