How to apply dynamic to all selected, possibly overriding links

I have this issue where I select all these notes, apply a dynamic via the popover and only some instruments get the dynamic applied, others not…

after:

What happens if you select one, apply the dynamic, copy it, select all the others and then paste?

Hi @doricorn, please post a cut-down version Dorico file of your example. It is difficult from pictures to see what is going on.

I can see why this is happening. Adding a dynamic on the downbeat automatically groups with the preceding hairpins, which are different lengths. Dorico can handle only one of those grouping operations at a time.

That’s it, thanks!
I suppose there’s no way to override this?

Steven’s first reply is the best method: Enter one f alone, copy it, and paste it to all the others. You can select one note and extend the selection to the top of the system on that beat with Ctrl+Shift+up arrow. Very quick.
