Re: Changing an articulation without deleting it

In Windows, and hopefully in Mac, if you have metatools for what you want, then double tap the metatool key and the articulation will change. For example, if it says 1 and you want 2, double click 2 when the handle is selected and the 1 changes to 2. If I have misunderstood the issue, then maybe I n...

Re: Can I embed an audio track into the score

I was reading the topic, which said an audio track. Sorry.

There is the option of syncing to an outside device through rewire.

Re: Can I embed an audio track into the score

Yes. However, it is not reliable. You need to turn off Human Playback or the track will get out of sync. If the track does not run at a perfect bpm, then you'll need to use tempo Tap to sync it, and that is not an easy task.

Re: Problems saving into the correct directory

I had so many problems in the past leaving Finale's default blank slot that I will never use that again. I create my own folders, as I stated earlier. I've never had any problems, as I double-check the chosen folder when saving. Since I have several versions of Finale on my system, I have a designat...

It said there that a reboot didn't help. I just rebooted and things are back to normal. So, I can't say why a reboot fixed it for me and not for him.

Playback Issues in Pre-2014.5 Finale

I read a post on the official MakeMusic forum about playback issues today with Finale 2010. Scrolling playback was the main problem mentioned. I checked 2011 and 2012, and I get the same problem. I rarely use those, but they were working properly when I got my new Windows 10 machine 3 months ago. Th...

Re: Problems saving into the correct directory

This has to do with how they set things up upon install. With every new version of Finale, I then go and create my own custom folders for musx files, bakx files, and asvx files (those last 2 go to the same folder). I also create a designated folder for the temp files, and I clean those out very freq...

Re: Swing setting affects note volume

Create a Custom HP Playback setting. In that window, uncheck Automatic Expression. That should stop the MOD Wheel issue.

Re: Swing setting affects note volume

Okay. I didn't see the Mod Wheel move in m. 8. I see now that MIDI Data has been applied to some of the tracks but not all. I'm not sure how you did that. Possibly you used the Apply HP feature to selected staves? If you want to have HP control all of the playback, you might want to either get rid o...

Re: Swing setting affects note volume

This discussion is about v26, and I see that v26.2 is the version used by the OP. I just updated to v26.3.1. I suppose I would have to examine a specific file with the issues to see if there is a noticeable problem as described.

Re: Expression causing unwanted playback effect

The workaround I use, if a particular font and character is needed, is to create the expression as a shape expression. HP won't recognize those. Another thing that seems to work is to put a space before the character. I guess that also confuses HP, thus causing it to not consider the character you r...

Re: New Finale 26.3.1.520 Available

One of the fixes, at least for Windows, is that the Return-to-Beginning button now works in the playback controls when you've chosen the option to play from the current counter setting.

Re: Converting from a Sibelius File?

If it is only 2 files, maybe you can find someone with Sibelius to do it for you. Another option, which takes a lot more cleanup work, is to export a MIDI file and import that into Finale. The first suggestion is better. I'm sure you know somebody with Sibelius. Maybe the one who originally entered ...

Re: Looking for Notehead

The Change utility for noteheads doesn't allow for choosing a different font. JW Change does, but you have to first change the font, then choose Custom notehead. Special Tools is another way to do it. No need to do it as an expression.

You should file a support case ASAP since MakeMusic doesn't read this forum and won't know about the problem unless you report it to them.

Re: Grace notes causing weird redraw glitch

I am testing this file in v26.2 and don't see any issues. Maybe this is a new bug to v26.3. Someone who has updated needs to test this file. Maybe you should send the file to support and have them examine it.

Re: Repeat selection window : no scrolling

Are you talking about the list of text repeats? Mine only works for scrolling once the list exceeds the size of the box. The default document doesn't have enough items in the list to activate the scrolling.

Maybe I am not understanding the situation.
