Re: Lost pizzicato

Check Human Playback settings and Device/Sound settings in the Score Manager. If old files play back as you like, compare old and new.

Re: Quintuplet figure across a barline

Look at Plug-ins/Note, Beam, and Rest Editing/Patterson Plug-ins Light/Beam Over Barlines. Since there are no beams, though, I'm not sure it buys you much. You can instead overstuff the first measure, then hide a half rest at the beginning of the second (see below). If it crosses a system break, tho...

Re: Problems saving into the correct directory

I always have Music and Back-up blank, and have never had any problems. I do have a special folder for autosave and temp. When trying to test the old double-click on a .mus file, the Windows mechanism "always open with this file type" didn't work. In fact, "Open with..." didn't work. I tried to get ...

Re: Problems saving into the correct directory

I checked, and you're right that when launching Finale by double-clicking in Windows Explorer, it used to set the "current" directory to that directory and no longer does. If you set your "Music" folder to nothing, like this, 0588.png then it will use whatever folder you last used (rather than some ...

Re: Quintuplet figure across a barline

I'm afraid it's hard to know what you're talking about from the picture you provided. Where does the desired quintuplet begin? I assume the middle bar is 5/4, but the time signature looks messed up.

Re: Problems saving into the correct directory

Are you sure you're not talking about Save As? As far as I know, Save never prompts for overwriting a file. And as far as I know, Finale has never made the folder you opened the file from with a double-click in Explorer the default folder for Save As. But someone with Finale 26 can confirm or refute...

Re: Repetition after clef

In the case the clef is displayed after the barline, mid-measure repeat would require adding an extra beat at the beginning, which would one need to hide and spend some extra time respacing the contents of the bar to make it look appealing. If clef should be displayed before the barline, one would ...

From the score with the Text tool, right-click on a page number handle and uncheck Show. Right-click again and pick Unlink in All Parts. Finally, right-click once more and pick Show.

Re: Repetition after clef

It seems like this has nothing to do with repeats.

If it's just one staff, it's easily done with an expression. The line is already in the default Miscellaneous category. Edit its position as follows:

Re: Playback Issues in Pre-2014.5 Finale

2014.5-v26 work fine, so I'm guessing it is an issue with the 32-bit version. 2014.5 is 32.bit. Finale 2005b and Finale 2011 seem to playback OK for me, MIDI playback. I have not installed "Windows 10, version 2004", which seems to be something one manually does, but otherwise am up to date. (MIDI ...

Re: Question on symbol

I've asked on Facebook. Someone said a double sharp, but that doesn't make sense with the picture above. Someone else said an asterisk--is there a footnote at the bottom of the page? Or scholarly notes accompanying the editon?

Re: Grace notes causing weird redraw glitch

The "tuplet" flag is indeed set in the edit frame, but Finale won't show the bracket or number, if they're grace notes. I don't get your bug, but it sounds like the solution is to not use tuplets in grace notes--I don't think grace notes have rhythms, do they?

Re: Expression causing unwanted playback effect

It happens to me. I suspect the problem is that the natural sign is sfz in the Maestro font and Human Playback is not looking at which font it actually is. You could either turn off Human Playback or use articulations for the fingerings instead.

Re: Grace notes causing weird redraw glitch

The grace notes in the file attached above don't appear to be a tuplet.

I tried and failed to make a grace note triplet in Finale. If that's really what you mean, how did you do it?

Re: rectangle box around measure

It sounds like "SmartFind and Paint," an old and arcane feature. It's bound to Ctrl-F. I don't think it survives saving, closing, and re-opening the file, but just type Ctrl-F again. If that doesn't get rid of the box, go to Edit/SmartFind and Paint/Deselect SmartFind Source.

Re: measure spacing

Sounds like you've got some systems locked. You might try unlocking everything (in the Selection tool, press Ctrl-A to select all, then press U) then respace (press 4 on the top row). Then tweak from there. When you move a measure up or down to another system, Finale will lock those systems.

Re: Looking for Notehead

Note Shape tool, click in the measure, then right-click on the note's handle.

But in JW Change, use Custom Font instead of Font (why are there both?). Then use Custom Shape to pick the symbol.
