Generally, Dorico’s condensing works like magic. I haven’t had to make any changes to the default settings and the scores look beautiful. However, in the attached score, the upper winds suddenly stop condensing on page 12. I have fiddled with settings, tried manual condensing, looked for reasons the flute 1 and 2 might not want to share a staff; I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.
Can anyone give me a hand?

Notation Options > Condensing > Pitch crossing approach > allow unlimited pitch crossing
Probably the phrase continues for Dorico and it won’t condense because of the pitch crossing on page 14.
quite high horn, and woodwinds at the beginning/end
That gets me headed in the right direction. I’ll keep playing with it. Thank you!
I want them to feel like they’re getting their money’s worth! (No, really, I’ll check the parts with some friends to find out if those sections are dreamy or screamy.)
