"Hide dynamic" changes spacing?

See below. I entered this chain as "p<>pp<>."I have to add the hidden dynamic so the messa di voce plays back correctly.

Why does hiding the dynamic move it like this, and also adjust the vertical spacing?

This doesn’t seem like the desired behavior. I want the hidden dynamic to stay where it was, and for the vertical spacing to not change.

EDIT: I fixed this by selecting everything and clicking “Remove from group.” The hidden dynamic now stays put. But I don’t think this should be necessary.

I asked about this a while ago and got some answers from Daniel.

As a workaround you can remove the text dynamics from the group and then hide them without messing up the spacing.

Thanks! I had totally forgotten about this thread.
