See attached score. Select the right-parenthesis in measure 7, enter edit mode (Ctrl + E), and move it 1sp at a time to the right (Ctrl + right arrow). After about 4 spaces it disappears completely! Put a pair of notehead brackets (noteheads palette) wherever you like and repeat the experiment: the right bracket always disappears after you move it a few spaces to the right.

Note it reappears the next time the score is laid out. For example, hit Esc to exit Edit mode, then hit Ctrl+A.

FWIW, I can't reproduce this in a score created from scratch - can you think of anything unique about those parentheses? Can you reproduce this from scratch?

I do see behavior like this from time time. Usually the symbol reppears the moment you leave Edit mode.

Yes, the right-bracket does re-appear when you exit edit mode. And I wasn't able to reproduce the same behaviour by cutting and pasting a section of the music to a new score. So the cause is a bit of a mystery.
