I am working on a piece of music using GPO5 strings and, perhaps later, expanding it to full orchestra. One small section at a tempo of 40 has a series of whole notes (5 of them). I wanted to start each note very very softly, have it swell in dynamics and then get soft again (say pp-f-pp) and when I first entered the music in Finale 2014 it did exactly what I wanted.
Today I opened the file to work on it and the dynamics no longer work. However, the dynamics are working on all other areas of the music, just not on the 5 whole notes described above - literally as if they were never entered. I deleted all dynamics for the 5 whole notes, and re-entered them. They still refuse to respond. I had earlier used full organ as an instrument and then changed the orchestration to strings. The dynamics originally still worked after that. I returned to the organ instrumentation thinking that would recover them. No luck - all dynamics work except with those 5 whole notes.
Any idea what is happening here?
