Re: Staff Size Different Staff Size per Part

FWI, I realized on the project template was the same problem. Redefining pages got it all straightened out, thanks!

Re: Staff Size Different Staff Size per Part

I see. The messy ones are all single staffs, no systems.

Thanks for the redefine hint, might be a little late for that, but I'll remember that next time.

Thanks folks,
As always,
Proud to be part of the community.

Staff Size Different Staff Size per Part

Hi Folks,

There's something I must be missing.

In the parts of this piece I'm working on, I have differences in staff sizes that shouldn't be there.

I did resize to 100% on all of them but to no effect.

Could someone show me what I'm missing?

Thanks,
Best,

JW Change - Sequence Editor - File Location

Hi Forum,

I'm porting to a different computer. Does anyone know where Jari defined the location for the presets I created in JW Change's Sequence Editor? I'm on MacOS.

Thanks, guys!

apkyburz, did that answer your question?
Yes! Once again I have to say, FinaleForum, I came locking for a coin and I left with a stash.

Looking for Notehead

Hi Forum,

I'm looking for the notehead in the pic. I either can't find or don't have it in the Symbol Selection Page.

Can somebody give me a hand?

Thx.

The usual rhythmic half note is the diamond. Are you saying you don't want to use the diamond?

Noteheads - Rhythic Half Notes

Hi Forum,

I'm a little in puddle. I want to improve Finale's standard rhythmic note head.

Does anyone half a hollow half-note for rhytmic noteheads in their toolbox and is willing to share?

Thanks a ton,

Chord Tool: Quick Respell

Hi,

Being in C-major key, Chord tool. entering C#m7 with MIDI Piano, it gets spelled as a Dbm7.

Is there a way to quickly respell a chord, à la "Enharmonic Respell, keypad "9" in Speedy Entry"?

Thanks,

Are clefs represented in the filter? If yes, under what domain? I can't find them.

Just to report, rebeam to time signature (6 eighth notes) removed the beams, then the cross-staff plug-in, then rebeam to time signature (1 dotted half) beamed them as in the picture.

Thanks again.
Oh nice, even simpler!

Re: Cross staff question

Hi Motet,

This has worked for me:

1. Unbeam all notes
2. Apply Cross Staff Plugin
3. Apply Patterson Beam Selection to the whole selection.

Re: Saving time signatures?

I've noticed a couple mistakes in the macro, I've sorted them out.

Find the zip file attached here.

Nick, I've tried the macro for your issue and I'm getting workable results.

Hi all, Upon Peter Thomsen input, I went ahead and created a few macros that work as a 'multiple clipboard feature'. This is for Keyboard Maestro, MacOS. Zip file is attached on the bottom. One shortcut saves clip-files into the download folder (choose a different folder if you like). Another short...

Re: Saving time signatures?

On Windows I have something called ClipMate, which treats the system clipboard like a stack, so it remembers every clip and lets you go back and paste an old one. Copying notes in Finale doesn't go there, though. Yes, Keyboard Maestro on MacOS has the same function, but with the same result as your...

Re: Saving time signatures?

Nick, as a more general question, could there be a way to use JWLua to generate multiple clipboards? Instead of having just the system clipboard, cmd/ctrl c &v? AFAIK there are only two clipboard-related functions in JWLua , both deal with copying text to the system's clipboard. There's no way a JW...

Indeed that would be a powerful feature. Meanwhile there is a similar Finale feature (but, alas, without drag-and-drop): File menu > Copy to Clip File… (you must hold down the correct modifier key = the Alt key, I think) You can name your Clip Files as you like, and you can use them anytime, anywhe...

This could be helpful in your instance, but in countless others.

Wacky Chord Autodefinition

Hi Forum,

For a few days now, my chord tool seems to do some funny things in terms of auto-defining bass notes in chord-inversions.

I'm sure someone has experienced this before, where's the issue?

Thank you,
Best
