Dynamics ignored after crescendo. MacOS High Sierra Version

• Jan 26, 2020 - 19:45

In this piece, bar 34 and 35 are supposed to have a crescendo to ƒ that starts at bar 36. Bar 37 is supposed to go back to p, but doesn't as long as the crescendo lines are present.

if I remove the cresc... lines, the ƒ and p dynamics are followed as expected.

When added again, the p is ignored. This applies for both "cresc..." and the hairpin.

I'm on W10 with the same version of MuseScore and the HQ sound font. Hair pins for measures 34 and 35 work. But it is very subtle. As a test on your system, change the "p" in measure 33 to "pp" and the "f" in measure 36 to "ff". See if hairpins work then.
Personally, I've never used "cresc.". Did you look at how it is defined in the Inspector?

Somehow it's connected also to the ottava marking - it's fixed if I delete that, or just end it before the measures in question. My guess there is some internal confusion over which octave to apply the dynamics to somehow, not that this really makes sense.
