how to indicate multiple staccato markings over single note

I am transcribing an early nineteenth century piece, and the string parts contain endless repeated quavers generally notated as minims with a single horizontal stroke through the stem (tremolo symbol). At times these minims have four staccato strokes above them to indicate that each of the four quav...

how to change vertical positioning of articulations already in score

How is it possible to change the vertical positioning of ALL instances of a particular articulation (in this case staccato strokes, both normal position and flipped) that are already in my score? It would take ages to edit each one individually. I've seen that 'Edit Articulation Definition' also eff...

Problems with Da Capo al Segno...

I'm editing a late eighteenth-century rondo which has numerous repeated sections that are followed by a Da Capo indication (it's actually a D.C. with the 'segno', but the symbol is superfluous as it is placed above the first bar). I was wondering if someone could help me with the editing of the repe...

I'm adding the finishing touches to a document, and am trying to organise the layout so that there are 4 systems on each page. On the last two pages, there are 3 systems and 1 system respectively, and I cannot move the single system across to the page with 3 systems. I've noticed that all of these s...

Re: playback doesn't work after changes to audio settings

Just by chance, I've managed to solve this problem. It turns out that my microphone was switched off in Windows privacy settings!! Maybe this solution will be of use to other users, seeing as the same issue is apparently experienced by a number of people.

playback doesn't work after changes to audio settings

I have a brand new laptop, and used Finale (14.5) on it for the first time yesterday. Everything was going okay, except for the volume which was very low. I started experimenting with the various audio settings and, lo and behold, Finale no longer starts playback; the green cursor remains above the ...

I'm editing a piece of music for a single melody instrument. I've inserted rehearsal numbers, but cannot remove or hide measure numbers. I've tried just about everything, from editing measure number regions to changing staff attributes, but nothing seems to solve the problem, and the measure numbers...

Default dynamic

Does anyone know what the default dynamic is for playback if no dynamic symbol is actually present? Is it f, mf, mp, mf ? And what key velocity does that correspond to?

possibility of playing notes outside standard range?

Is it possibile to get Finale (Aria Player) to play notes outside the standard range of an instrument? In my case I'm referring to the bass extension of the harpsichord. Many French 18th century harpsichords had a bass range descending as low as G1 with Finale any notes below C will not play. Is the...

bar numbers missing

I've just noticed that the first movement of a three-movement work (prepared as single file with Finale) lacks bar numbers, whereas the numbers are present in the second and third movements. Does anyone know what the cause could be, and how to fix it?

Garritan Ambience

I'm trying out Finale 25, and have noticed that Garritan Ambience is missing, or at least no longer included with the Aria player. Can this be fixed by downloading the Garritan Ambience driver, which I've seen is available online?

Re: anacrusis not playing on repeat

I now seem to have solved the problem, miker, or at least to have got around it. I copied and pasted the first section rather than using the repeat sign, and I also updated the layout.

Thanks for your interest. :)

anacrusis not playing on repeat

I have a piece in binary form, 6/8 metre, with a quaver upbeat. Upon playback, the opening is fine until the first section is repeated, when the quaver upbeat is for some reason just not heard.No problems with the second section which also has a quaver upbeat; this plays without problems also when r...
