Help with a Manual Condensing please

I am trying to “un-condense” the Viola passage as shown in the screenshot and made the Manual Condensing Change I thought would do it … but it didn’t. What am I doing wrong?


(the notation on bottom left is what I want, on bottom right is what I am getting from Dorico)

Try putting this condensing change at the start of the system.
You can only change the number of staves once per system, and a condensing change midway through a system will only take effect from the start of the next system.

Thanks @pianoleo . I’m sure that will answer my question.

Can’t try it at the moment though as the Manual Condensing slider won’t light up any more for Viola condensing group … but that’s another issue. Will try and find out what’s happening there.
