The attached file, which is set up in Dorico but with everything pasted in from an xml import from Finale, has some really strange things going on. The original file is 946 bars long.
- The bar numbers are off +1. The system track holds the truth.
- The pick up bar does not group the rests correctly for Fl, Cl and Fag
I tried to solve this, but eventually I found that if I delete bars the problem is gone. If I then undo, the problem stays gone, but if I then save and open the file again – problem back.
After a process of trial and error I have found that the problem resides in b. 687, which is the penultimate bar in the attached test file:
If the last bar is deleted, you will see that the barlines go crazy:
Maybe this is a clue. I don’t know.
I have also found that if I delete the 12/8 from Flauto I, the problem goes away. But no matter what I try it comes back – I have even tried to save the file with the 12/8 deleted, opened it again, copied the 12/8 to Fl. I, all fine, saved, opened – problem back. The section that starts here has independent time signatures, and I use the method outlined in Florian’s article on Scoring Notes.
I am lost. Ideas? Suggestions?
