I know it as a non-transposing instrument. The Vienna Symphonic Library page on the Cimbasso is quite helpful and correct: https://www.vsl.co.at/en/Brass/Cimbasso

Re: Different graphic for each part

Create a shape expression which contains the graphic. This way, you have full control over its appearance and its placement in the score or in different parts. You might create individual shape expressions for every part, which show only in the part, but not in the score. In the shape designer dialo...

Re: MIDI file problem

FINMIDI.INI only contains information for sending and receiving MIDI events, but it contains no settings for importing or transcribing MIDI files. Probably, the problem are the settings in the MIDI file impor...

Re: Best MIDI Keyboard for Finale

The size is something to consider as small keyboards with only e.g. 25 keys need to be transposed to input higher and lower notes (they usually have dedicated buttons for that). 61 key keyboards won‘t fit on every desk, as well as an 88 key instrument. You‘ll be faster in inputting notes if you have...

If anything in any program doesn't get saved which it should, first make sure the program and/or the logged-in user has the writing permission to the drive & folder in question.

Re: click on measure 1

Add a Drum Set staff, enter the metronome clicks and set this staff's attribute "Force Hide Staff".

Beware, your Flute#2 is set to "solo" - so unless you change that, you won't hear the clicks (and neither flute#1).

In my case I'd have to break all the barlines through 7 staves, except the central barline. What do you mean by "central barline"? This would only make sense if you have an uneven number of barlines, which would allow one of them being in the center. Maybe you problem can be solved with the creatio...

The Score Manager's transpose section is for transposed instruments only, like e.g. clarinet or trumpet. What you need to do is to select the key signature tool, select the whole piece and double-click. The key signature dialog box comes up. Select the new key to which the first bars of your score s...

Thanks, but why is that obvious?
Just wanted to emphasize that neither the shift key nor the chosen letter key are part of the problem. Only using the Ctrl key leads to the unwanted opening of the dialog. So for me, it's obvious that the Ctrl key is the culprit.

Re: Unwanted window popup with Staff tool shortcut

Obviously, the CTRL key is the problem. Using a hotkey without CTRL will make it work.
