Re: Hide ledger lines on single layer

Thanks guys! Not sure where the JW change plugin is, but Peter's method worked great! Never knew that advanced menu even existed. I'm aware I could easily add extra staves, but I'm after as few page turns as possible, and a single chart for the whole band :-) (I'm on v25, have updated my profile... ...

Hide ledger lines on single layer

Hi all - I assume this is possible - can I hide ledger lines only on a single layer? I'd like to keep them on layer 1 and hide them on layer 2. I make a lot of lead sheets with "extra" stuff like rhythm notes above/below the staff etc. Sometimes I'd like to hide the ledger lines for the extra stuff ...

adjusting location of top staff on second and further pages

Hi all, In page layout tool, I'm trying to figure out what handle I can grab to drag the top staff down the page a bit. For the second and further staves, there's a handle on the right on the top of each staff that I can drag, but nothing for the top staff. The one on the upper left doesn't work bec...

Re: Strange system/page layout moves

Thx, margins are 0.5" all around... I've even tried copy and pasting the entire lead sheet into a new score, same behavior. FWIW, this lead sheet originally was from an xml that I created from pdf sheet of music, there were lots of weird text things and other stuff I had to delete and change. Not su...

Strange system/page layout moves

Hi all, I have a lead sheet I'm mostly finished, now just spacing the staves on the pages. Sometimes when i highlight a measure to move it down to the next system, and then press the down arrow, finale moves it onto the next page, leaving a lot of blank space on the original page, which I don't want...

Creating new Chord symbols

Hi all, i'm into the finale copyist font lately, nice and clear, easy to read. Looks great. So i've made a new lead sheet template for myself using that font. Mostly all is well, but I'm trying to create new chord symbols that don't come with the normal library. For example, the delta symbol for maj...

multiple short pieces on same sheet

Hi all, have been using finale for years, but have strangely not run across this yet. How can I print/publish multiple short pieces of music on the same sheet of paper? Each one should have its own title, copyright, etc. Some are as short as just four bars and might only take a single system. FYI, t...

Re: Printing in Multiple keys

Sorry guys, I thought I replied to this earlier today, but I guess it didn't go through. Im no longer on 2009, I've updated to the latest, v25. I don't see a transposition option in the staff attributes, or in the define staff styles menu? I can get my lead sheets into Bb changing instruments in the...

Printing in Multiple keys

So I have many lead sheets in concert pitch. I'd like to make pdfs in concert, and an additional set for a Bb instrument. Is there a way to do this without creating an additional part? It sure would be nice to only edit the single lead sheet and not multiple parts when (not if) i find mistakes in th...

Re: Transposing instruments speedy entry

Ok, thanks! I was hoping there was a setting to change...I kind of like working with the transposing instruments as they read them, keeps my brain sharp and helps me understand the pain they deal with when people give them charts in concert pitch lol. But sounds like the only workaround is to displa...

Transposing instruments speedy entry

So I have a clarinet in Bb - no problem, I just transpose everything down a half step in my head and all is well when Im arranging. However, when I use simple entry to enter notes, they play back in the transposed key (F in this case), not the concert key (Eb.) How do i set finale up so that when I ...
