Re: finale and cubase

No I don’t but it wouldn’t be that hard to do. Unfortunately, spare time is a precious commodity. I’m spending a huge number of hours helping churches do services online. If I ever work with my choirs and bands in person again, it would be fun to knock something out. I wouldn’t use one of my client...

Re: finale and cubase

Dorico imports XML very well, but exports it poorly. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I agree only with the exports…poorly part. Dorico 3.1, which just came out, greatly improves XML import. I’d call it quite functional now, though of course there’s always room for improvement. Dan is righ...

Quick Staff Creation

Hi Folks, I found this discussion with Jari but the thread never concluded: http://jwmusic.nu/pipermail/jwlua_jwmusic.nu/2014-May/001946.html Does anyone have a time-efficient workaround to create staffs? I'm thinking in the direction of creating blank staff and then applying staff-styles for instru...

Yes. In the Score Manager, pick "Other" for the Tenor Sax's transposition and set Interval = 9, Key Alter = -10, and check "Simplify Key." This will only affect F#/Gb.
Nice, thanks motet, always a pleasure!

Transposing Instruments - 6 sharps/flats

Hi Forum,

I have a Tenor Sax that I'd like to see in Gb-major instead of F#.

I know it can be done via independent key signature, but is there a more elegant way?

Thanks,
Best

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.

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,

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,

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.
