Using Finale 25 on Windows 10.
I would like to make the playback of my score less mechanical with subtle tempo changes. So I create a ritardando (or use the rit that comes with the program) and then reset the tempo with "a tempo", specifying the original metronome speed. That seems to work. However, if I then use another ritardando later in the score, the effect is much exaggerated, as if the reset didn't work. I don't understand why this happens or how to fix it.
