Flow Duration Token Not Filling In

In a project with only one flow I have an Instrumentation Master Page with this on it:



It shows as:


The token {@flow1Duration@} fills in correctly. The docs say “{@flowDuration@} - Duration of the current flow in minutes and seconds”

Any idea why it’s not being filled in?


Does the MP have a music frame on it? If not, Dorico has no reference to extract Flow info. Does {@flow1duration@} work?

It’s not on the same page as the flow, probably. Try {@flow1duration@}

This must be it because there is only a text frame. I learn something new every day! Thanks, Craig.

Hi there,
Having an issue with the flow duration token. I have a score with 3 flows.
On the cover page I have an index with the movement titles and their duration.
Everything was working fine until now. I made some edits to the 3rd flow and now, even though the token wasn’t edited, the duration shows as 1".
Has anyone had similar issue and if so, how have they solved it?

I just closed the project and reopened it. Now the token is working like it should.
Really weird.
Hopefully my problem is no more, though it would be interesting to find out how/why it failed before doing this last step.
