Divisi/ivp second voice no output

Continuing to test divis and ivp … I created a simple project with 1 Viola, divisi with the divided part having a second voice.

The 2nd voice of the divided part does not play for some reason and it appears the 2nd voice doesn’t even register with Dorico …

Steps to recreate:

  1. new project
  2. add Viola (section)
  3. apply HSSE+HSO (Pro) template.
  4. scribble some notes
  5. create divisi → Staff → Change Divisi (add Section)
  6. scribble some notes in divisi
  7. create 2nd voice, scribble some notes

Strangely, when selection of the notes in the 2nd voice, nothing appears (the E3 was selected).

Notice there is no velocity?

Is this expected and if so… is there some explanation?

Better pick

Have you tried reapplying your playback template after enabling independent voice playback and create extra voices?

Could you perhaps share the project itself? For playback investigation purposes, there’s not an awful lot that can be gleaned from pictures alone, I’m afraid!

Thanks for the reply.

With IVP enabled, the 2nd voice (really the third for the instrument) was created. Reapplying the playback template seemed to fix output but I still can’t explain the missing velocity display, what’s more, I can’t reproduce it. I’m guessing it had something to do with the order of events.

If I do run across this anomaly again, I’ll package up the project.
