Sustain pedal level changes

I entered level changes for a sustain pedal line, see handwriting in attached image, left hand of a piano part.
Normally I would expect the pedal line to keep going up until the end.
But Dorico produces a downward lurch at the very end which I don’t understand, since the entire second half of the bar is designated as 1/4 pedal, and full pedal doesn’t come again until after the bar line.
(Before someone else says it: no, sustaining the notes over those pauses does not change anything here.)

I think by default the end level is 1, so the downward slope is travelling between the 1/4 depression and the end. You can change the end level in Engrave mode: select the pedal line, and either use the End level property in the bottom panel, or drag the middle handle on the end of the pedal line upwards.

Thanks so much- I had only considered the properties in Write mode…
