I was thrilled to see the Condensing Changes feature added to Dorico in 3.1 as I am finishing up a short piece for full orchestra, but after a few uses, it has stopped working. I changed the condensing on the first two pages (after much lag), and since then the feature does not work at all. For example, please look at the clarinets in bars 32-37 (image 1) and then bars 39-40 (image 2). I have tried condensing bars 32-37 them into one staff, but nothing changes. Bars 39-40 should have been condensed automatically, but now Dorico isn’t letting me change them at all. The feature no longer works for any instrument group.
Dorico runs smoothly in any other setting, but to be fair, this is my first time using the condensing feature in any capacity. Apparently the file is too large to attach here, but I would be happy to email it if you’ll take a look at it. Thank you for any assistance you can offer!
P.S. When I was successfully able to make condensing changes, dynamics which should have combined started disappearing. Is there a known fix to this?
