Simplify appears to be gettings stuck when I include a factor. I would like [57] to reduce the expression to 'a', just has [58] has reduced the expression to 1.

In[57]:= Simplify[a.Cos[x]^2 + a.Sin[x]^2]
Out[57]= a.Cos[x]^2+a.Sin[x]^2

In[58]:= Simplify[Cos[x]^2 + Sin[x]^2]
Out[58]= 1

Any thoughts much appreciated
