I don’t understand how to avoid it
It’s in 12/8 but that should not make any difference I assume.
Happy if somebody knows how to fix it.

When you lengthen the note, the existing Force Duration properties are cleaned up. At the moment there’s nothing you can do to influence this, except to reinput the note to the appropriate duration with Force Duration engaged.

Thank you Daniel, I didn’t quite understand your wording there but found my way thanks to https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=246&t=134518&sid=0887c0f061351058030f5476321518e0

It was just a typo, Bengt. ‘rein put’ => ‘reinput’.

Aha, I never got it. Am I stupid? Yes! Thanks <:-)
