So I’m revisiting a previous project and came across two odd bugs that have created themselves…
You can see the “Percussion I” player holding several instruments, “Percussion II” holding several, etc.
There are also empty players of the same names.
I took the time to create the instrument names you see listed so that they would not pick up automatic numbering (e.g. the vibraphone, for example, is played by 3 players, so they got labeled as Vibe 1, 2, 3 - which adds noise & confusion in the labels).
However, these rogue players that appear empty - when the “empty” player is selected, the instruments in the block above are selected - as if they are attached to the wrong thing and grouped oddly.
If I delete the “empty” players, it deletes BOTH players. The only way to get it back is to hit “Undo,” then the player WITH instruments comes back, while the “empty” player does not come back.
However - in this screenshot, Percussion IV and Percussion V are still showing the second of each of their instruments (e.g. Percussion IV Chimes II - this should just read “Percussion IV Chimes” - there is only one instrument identified as “Percussion IV Chimes”).
Considering there are hidden instruments somewhere that Dorico thinks are there, I don’t know how to fix this instrument label problem without recreating the whole score. I’ve already tried editing the existing text labels and that doesn’t change the addition of the “II” at the end of every part.
