Oh dear, it didn't! The staff in question (in my score) isn't at the top of the full score. It's a piano 4-hands score so I want the Ritard. to be at the top of staves 1 & 3, but not 2 or 4. To the tweak in the snippets won't work either as that puts marks over all staves.

But I see there's an issue 2199 on the subject and it's been fixed in 2.21, which I'm having to use anyway for another issue. I'll look at thie in more detail now I've found it.
