Seems to be a bar missing too, and the time sign change in the last bar before 'to ob' too... definitely seen this before. Is it native dorico or imported xml?

Native dorico.

There should be no meter change there either, it is still in 9/8.

So the bar with only a dotted quarter is missing 6 eights and part of the problem?

Can you zip up and attach the project here, so I can take a look?

It is the case that if an instrument change occurs in the middle of a bar, rests can go missing, but I can't see any reason why the instrument change should occur in the middle of the bar in your case, so being able to take a look at the project file would be helpful.

Daniel,

Thanks in advance for taking a look. It is attached here.

As I have played with the file some more, I was able to get the multimeasure rest to work when I inserted a line break into the part. Interesting...

FWIW, I noticed that in the full score, page 6 ends with bar no.39. At the start of page 7 there is no bar no., but the system has two bars, and the following system starts with bar 41... In Galley view this is bar 42...

Interesting... I very much wonder what happened to make this happen. Oh the joys of figuring out a new software's quirks!

Chase, it looks like you've revised the music since you posted the initial screenshot and have filled bar 48 with music, so at least the right number of beats are found there. I can't diagnose the reason for the broken multi-bar rests myself even with your project, but I will pass it on to the man who can and will report back when I have more information.

Daniel,

Oops... I must have sent the wrong save file. My apologies. Thanks for taking a look at it.
I can say that it only does that in the Ob./E.H. lines. Maybe a bug with instrument changes?

Sorry to take so long to come back to you on this one, Chase. We have looked into this and have narrowed down the problem to the fact that you have (probably inadvertently) used staff-specific (or as we sometimes call them "local") time signatures. When you created the 9/8 time signature in bar 40, it looks like you accidentally created the 9/8 time signature on the English Horn staff either by Alt+clicking it onto that staff from the panel or by hitting Alt+Enter when you created it via the Shift+M popover. Even though the global and local time signatures here happen to be identical, Dorico doesn't consider the Oboe and English Horn staves equivalent, and so it won't show multi-bar rests in that passage.
