Re: Adjusting tenor sax range?

Try using the treble clef with an 8 underneath it (used for the tenor voice) instead of the treble clef in "Display in concert pitch." That will show it an octave higher than it really is, but playback will be what you want. You can probably leave "display out-of-range notes" on as well. Use the nor...

Re: Gliss for multi staff instrument doesn't playback correctly

Joshua,

I should have suggested cross-staff rather than the Note Mover tool. Instead, highlight the note to move to the upper staff with the Selection tool (draw a box around it) and press Alt+up-arrow.

Re: Gliss for multi staff instrument doesn't playback correctly

You might try putting writing the high note on the bottom staff and then moving it with the Note Mover tool.

Re: Adjusting tenor sax range?

Bass clef is not ridiculous. In "display in concert pitch," the notes are shown as they sound in the octave where they sound, so tenor sax range falls more naturally on the bass clef. In treble clef, its low B-flat would require five ledger lines. But you can switch back and forth between clefs. Wit...

Re: Adjusting tenor sax range?

If you added tenor sax with the set-up wizard and are getting bass clef, it sounds like you're using "Display in concert pitch." That removes transposition. If so, notes above the treble clef would be extremely high for tenor sax. Concert pitch (after changing clef): 0744.png Transposed: 0743.png

Re: Adjusting tenor sax range?

I think there's a beginner/intermediate/advanced level to that setting, no?

I also suggest turning it off and instead get to know the instruments' ranges and tessituras so you don't need it.

I do believe there's a SQL file that specifies the ranges, though, that can be edited with a SQL editor.

Re: gaming the system

I've recently seen some ads to get Finale 26 at a very low price, and what that suggests to me is that version 26 is about to be abandoned because something new is coming along. As I think Mike Rosen pointed out, since there are no DVDs or printed manuals anymore, there's no old stock to get rid of...

Re: Redraw needed when switching to Selection tool

As usual, it took a lot of fooling around to get it to work reliably. Alt-V R is more reliable than Ctrl-D for some reason; though I tried various delays, etc., Ctrl-D was not always getting processed.

Must be, mmike--thanks for checking. I solved it by having Autohotkey send two Escapes followed by Ctrl-D when a function key is pressed.

Re: Redraw needed when switching to Selection tool

Yes.

Finale 2011 exhibits the problem as well, though apparently only with slurs, not hairpins. Oddly, the handle of the slur that has been adjusted is removed, but others on the display remain.

Redraw needed when switching to Selection tool

If I make an edit by clicking on a handle in the SmartShape tool and adjusting one of the subhandles, then switch to the Selection tool, the SmartShape handles remain and I need to redraw with Ctrl-D to get rid of them. This sounds minor, but it's annoying because I'm typically making many such fine...

Re: Different rest position in score and linked part

While on the cue subject, does anyone know how to reduce the 8va smart shape in a cue? Articulations and note expressions scale with the notes, but not smart shapes. Yanko I guess you could always omit the smart shape from the cue and then add a custom one in which you reduce the point size by an a...

How do you unlink a rest or note? Special Tools/Note Position Tool. Right Click the handle and the option is there. No need to move it first. You can Relink it there as well.

Re: Different rest position in score and linked part

Great work-around. Copy/Move Layers should help. Maybe it's time MakeMusic revisted cues. I spend a lot of time on them, which could be automated. Ever since expressions were redone in Finale 2009, I think it was, the Cue Notes plug-in assigns the cue label to all layers, so it doesn't get scaled, i...

I'm tempted to spring for the Dorico cross-grade, which would be $140 with the 50%-off deal. Though I bought the Sibelius cross-grade back when and never used it.

Re: Different rest position in score and linked part

If the measure is otherwise empty, define a staff style specifying the alternate notation "blank notation with rests" in layer 4, and unchecking everything in "show in other layers." Apply this to the score only. This will hide both the cue and the real whole rest in the score and display a default ...

There you go. Seems pretty obvious. MM says OS 10.5 to 10.9.

Apple doesn't seem to put any effort into making things backwardly compatible, so you may be out of luck.
