Suddenly, re-ordering the players isn't reflected in Gallery mode

Hello Geniuses, and happy Saturday.

Sorry if this has been discussed, I searched and could not find…

I have a weird problem, I have been working on a suite of 23 pieces, all OK, until the very last one and for some odd reason that I’m sure there’s a simple explanation for (because it seems there always is) the order of players is different in gallery view than in the players panel and dragging the players in the panel does nothing at all to change the order. I have tried everything. I’m sure it has something to do with layouts which I still don’t fully grasp. All my other times with Dorico this has not been an issue.

What am I missing here?

thank you,

You might have changed the order in the Layout options>Players>Uses custom player order ? Check that, for your Full score.

that was it!

Strangely it came over on the XML, I didn’t change it. At least I don’t think so.

thank you!

I suppose if the instrument order in imported XML doesn’t match any of the default orders, Dorico has to use the override. See Setting custom player orders.

good info. I will. Thanks.
