Request: The ability to filter Condensing Changes

Hi Dorico team,

Sometimes, e.g. when changing to another paper format, I want to start to layout my music from scratch. In such a situation, I usually delete all the frame breaks, page breaks and note spacing changes, which is easy to do because they are “filterable”. However, I would also like to be able to erase all the condensing changes as easily as the others, but since they’re not “filterable”, I have to do it by hand. I assume it is not that difficult to implement? :slight_smile:

All the best! :slight_smile:

Note that Select More works just fine with Condensing Changes.

Ah, thanks! :slight_smile:

Would simply starting a new layout allow you to reset paper size and format from sratch?

True, but sometimes you don’t want to do everything from scratch. :wink:

Your words, not mine.

There are other advantages to only deleting previously mentioned layout objects, e.g. keeping the title page, keeping the preface, keeping staff spacing, keeping initial note spacing, keeping other layout settings…
