Deleted notes still display

F26, when I delete a note on the screen it remains on display until I scroll the screen up or down. Sounds minor, I know, but if I am working quickly I think I did not delete it and hit the Delete key again, only to find I have deleted too many notes. A similar effect is apparent when I edit lyrics....

Re: How did I do this?

Looks like "avoid margin collisions" is turned off, or "space between systems" is negative. But who knows? Finale gives you enough rope to hang yourself. It is checked. I did a Page Layout / Redefine pages / All pages for each part and the issue went away. What will happen if I edit the score and r...

How did I do this?

Suppose I wanted to print the first two pages of a part "normally" but on the last page, squish all the systems together with no space between them? I did a File / Extract Parts. A Doc / Manage Parts / Part Creation Preferences / (.) Copy spacing from Score. And probably countless other things. Why ...

Re: View gpes tp top staff on playback

Have you tried Studio View? There the position stays when playback begins. You also have the option of changing settings (Mute, Solo, Volume) on the fly. Zuill P.S.: I guess Spacebar-Click doesn't allow on the fly changes, as clicking over on the mixer controls stops playback. However, using the Pl...

Re: The Case of The Missing Violin

You can rename it. If you haven't done any formatting of your parts, you can instead click Generate Parts, which will make all new parts and also solve your multimeasure rest problems. But any tweaking you've done to the parts will be lost. OK. That appears to fix No. 3. Still no joy on No. 1. the ...

May I suggest a separate thread for printing issues? They seems to be endemic, complex, and hard to correct.

OK. Progress - of a sort.
Re Number 2. In the Flute staff, I selected some contiguous measures, then Edit/Multimeasure Reste/Create for Parts/score.
This eliminated the third page and put in the multimeasure rests everywhere - not just where I selected.

Re: Playback ignores expression values

Usually I can find the cause of this kind of behavior. So far, I can't pin it down. However, there is a workaround that will get you by, I think. Edit the Score List 1, which is the one used for the Tempo category. Check all the staves for Parts in the definition, and now the tempos should work. Si...
