Re: Same clef multiple times within one measure

Welcome to the forum! Since everything is in the Bass Clef, there - strictly speaking - is no need for {clef change} clefs. To me it looks like the “extra clefs” serve the purpose of showing, what notes are sung by Figaro, and what notes are sung by Bartolo. One way to do it: In a Finale document yo...

Re: Problem with spelling table

Unfortunately your attached graphic has a very low resolution - it is barely readable (at least for me, using the Opera browser).

If you could attach it again - with a higher resolution - then I am confident that we can help you much better.

You could add the articulations to the template you use for creating new documents.

Re: Page format - score

NB:
The default formatting is document specific, not program specific.
It is possible to have different default formatting in different documents.
This is by design, and what users have requested.
To get the desired formatting in all new documents, use a custom template.
