Re: Entering Verse 2 Lyrics - Crashes...

Okay, I'm back... 10 files later and this happened again... Beyond frustrating. I cannot figure out what is causing this. I tried the XML import that miker (and a MakeMusic employee) recommended, and while that does stop it from crashing, the formatting is so rancid that I cannot get it back to what...

Re: Entering Verse 2 Lyrics - Crashes...

Yes, the attached file is (close enough to) what I seek. I have done about 30 files like this already, but ever since this last one my streak has been halted. To clarify, I have tried the following: Windows 10, finale 2012c -created from scratch -copied content into new file Windows 7, finale 2012c ...

Entering Verse 2 Lyrics - Crashes...

Every time I try to add a second verse of lyrics, Finale crashes. I am using the click assignment, and finale freezes after inserting the first word of verse two. I have recreated the file from scratch three times, used two different computers (Windows 7 and 10) and tried this on Finale V26 and Fina...

Re: Multiple Parts on the Same Staff - No Playback

if you select "solo flute" as the instrument, it limits to one voice. for multiple parts you have to use "player" samples. Wow, I didn't know that, thanks! However, it looks like JABB doesn't play in harmony no matter which instrument I choose. I just tried all of them to no avail, then switched ba...

Re: Switching to and from Swing Eighths

Go to the Expression panel that has the swing expression, and click on Edit Categories. You can edit the list in the next dialogue box. Thank you, I found it. Do I need to have the HP set to Jazz for this to work? Since checking all instruments, it still only plays either all swing in Jazz HP or al...

Re: Multiple Parts on the Same Staff - No Playback

Thanks for the reply miker. Yes, everything is on its own channel. Back to my example, the horns will play both parts when containing harmony, its instruments like flute and clarinet that aren't playing back in harmony.

Multiple Parts on the Same Staff - No Playback

Its me again! Another odd request: I'm working on a score and in order to save paper, I've combined several instruments' parts onto one staff (a la flt 1-2, Horns 1-3, 2-4, etc.). However, some of these staves only playback a single pitch rather than the split. For example, the flute parts only play...

Re: Switching to and from Swing Eighths

Thanks for the reply. How would I do this? Is the Score List the same as the Score Manager?

Switching to and from Swing Eighths

Hello, I am attempting to implement a section using swing eighths in a piece I'm writing. The majority of the piece is straight, and only this 32 bar segment is to swing. However, I cannot find out how to have the playback work correctly, and it simply plays everything with straight eighth notes. An...

Re: Brass Mute Sounds in Finale 2012

Oh my, that is wonderful. Worked like a charm. Thank you so much for your help!

Edit: where do you get the information for the fields within the data dump? Also, what do I need to do to un-mute the trumpet sounds?

Brass Mute Sounds in Finale 2012

Hello all. Is there a way to get brass instruments to play back in certain mutes? My specific example is in a big band chart; I would like to hear the trumpets in harmon mutes, but I cannot get it to work. I was hoping someone here would be so kind as to explain how to get it to work. Currently I ha...

Re: Page Margin Question

Thank you so much! That did the trick. Also, for the record, I tested the Update Page Format for Score option and it yielded no results.

Page Margin Question

Hello all! I frequently have this issue while working with Finale (2012). While writing I'll adjust the page size, orientation, margins, etc. with the Page Layout Tool and set it to affect all pages. However, once I add a page said new page is back to the original formatting. Is there a way to adjus...
