Tempo Lines do not Reset Position

The class of Line concerned with Tempo changes (incorporating the text rit./rall./accel.) do not, when the text is individually selected, respond vertically to "Reset Position".

Live Tempo Malfunction

I'm currently trying to work on a piece that is in 8/4 time, and is 200 measures long with 33 staff lines on Sibelius 7.5.1, using Windows 7 Home Premium.

We may try to surreptitiously copy an equation from another location and paste it in the correct location but as soon as anything else is changed on the page it reverts back to the broken multirests.
