Re: Constantly Updating Screen

Hey Bill...my signature should be correct: iMac 5k 2017, 3.4GHz, Intel Core i5, OS 10.14.2, Finale 26

Not 2014.

Constantly Updating Screen

Does this happen to anyone else? Every time I switch from Speedy to another tool, this happens and I have to update the screen in order to set it right. Ideas?

Thanks,

Re: Don't beam when tied

Thanks, guys. Peter...yeah, I know it's quick but I have a long passage like this and it prompted me to ask if there was a way to bypass going back. Michael...yeah, personal preference to see it as 8ths. Might possibly be from my formal training as a percussionist. LOL Thanks everyone...I'll suggest...

Don't beam when tied

Hey all, I know about the Document option to have 8ths beamed across 2 beats or not, but I wanted to know if there's a way to tell Finale this... 1) DON'T beam 4 eighth notes together when the & of 1 is tied to the 2nd beat. 2) DO beam 4 eighth notes together when there is no tie. See attached pic. ...

Re: Tying chords

Thank you everyone. As I said, I know the rule. I'm looking to override the rule. I want to set Finale to ALWAYS tie the entire chord. Regardless of mouse or crosshairs.

It's a mistype. I meant "to" not "top."

Tying chords

Hey all, Other than when I'm writing an organ part, there is never a time when in Speedy, I want to tie just one note of a chord to another. For 99% of my writing, I want to tie the entire chord. Now I know the rule about the mouse hovering deciding whether it's the whole chord that ties or not, but...

Smart Shapes with Mac Trackpad

Hey all, I've actually always had this issue so it's not an update thing but: I use the Mac trackpad and have it set for light tapping (meaning, I just gently tap and not push hard for a "click."). Anyway, this works with everything except the Smart Shapes which require click and drag, like hairpins...

Pasting text font

Hi group. I am currently copying and pasting a lot of dialogue from a PDF onto a Finale score as “text.” Is there a way to set the font so that with each paste, I don’t need to individually change the font of the text each time I paste in some lines? Thanks!

Hey all. Is anyone using Touch OSC (ipad) and OSCulator for controlling Finale? I am able to set it to follow Finale’s key commands (like esc for selection tool) but commands like CTRL+OPT+F, which allows me to jump to a different tool, like speedy are document-specific. So I was advised to save my ...

Anyone else having this problem?

Layers not lining up

Hey all,

Haven't encountered this one until now. On my drum charts, layers 1 and 2 are not lining up. (See screenshot) I have Music Spacing--Manual Position set to "clear" and still get this. Is there a global way to fix this rather than measure-by-measure with Special Tools?

Thanks!
