Re: Create Recurring Text Block

Thanks! I got it to work, thanks to your replies. A note to anyone who may be searching in these forums and find this topic - you need to create a new text block, then after creating it, select it, right-click, and select "Edit frame attributes", and then you'll see the dialog that Peter Thomsen pos...

Re: Cause Score To Show Written C Major For All Instruments

Oh ---- I just solved the problem. After I posted this, I searched online for 5 seconds and found a page which reminded me of one aspect I was forgetting. I need to go into ScoreManager, select the instrument, and change the transposition from "Up M2, add 2 sharps", to "Chromatic - Up M2". That solv...

Cause Score To Show Written C Major For All Instruments

Edit - solved. See my reply post below this one... I have a Finale file in Finale 25. It is a score which is 10 pages long and has 10 different instruments. I created this score in Finale 25 as a brand new score (several weeks ago). After I created this new file, I opened up the old Finale file for ...

Create Recurring Text Block

Is there a way to create a recurring text block? I am working in the score and I want to create an insert of my website address on every page, and I would prefer not to have to add it (and position it individually) as an individual text block on each page. Is there a way to add a new recurring text ...

Ritard is not working only in specific measures

When I add "rit." to specific measures in my piece, it does nothing. But if I add "rit." to other places in the piece, it works. For example, if I put a "rit." in measure 3, it works, and continues to slow down. But if I get rid of that "rit." and instead add a "rit." in measure 5, or measure 6, it ...

Is there an Android app that can read .mus or .musx files?

Hello, This is more of a question than a "wishlist" item, but there isn't really another subforum that's more appropriate for this question. Is there an Android app that has the capability of reading .mus files and .musx files? Or, is there an Android app which would allow some sort of workaround (l...

Re: Particular Measure on Particular Staff Won't Play Above

Win 10, Finale 26 I read this with interest because I have exactly the same problem in a piece I am working on now. String Quartet, everybody playing p, nothing unusual, very simple music, but all of a sudden in 2 measures the sound drops out of the viola. As if the dynamic had changed to pppp. Sti...

Re: Particular Measure on Particular Staff Won't Play Above

the reason you might not notice a difference when you insert a ffff marking is that it might not have playback defined. remember that MIDI volume goes from 0 to 127. you can't go higher. Aha! Then that answers why that was happening. (The trumpet staves were set to 127 (by me) when I was using Smar...

Re: Particular Measure on Particular Staff Won't Play Above

Sorry. I don't hear a click. When I take out the ffff, it sounds the same level as the prior measures. I'm testing in Finale 26. Zuill P.S.: I tested in v25 and still it seems to behave properly without a click, and, after removing the ffff, plays without dropping in volume. Thanks for the testing ...

Re: Particular Measure on Particular Staff Won't Play Above

Hard to say without seeing a file. Often there can be things that are hidden. There might be MIDI data, for example. Was this file created freshly in Finale, or imported from a MIDI file or XML file? Zuill Thanks for the response - attached is the Finale file for testing/diagnostics. This file was ...

Particular Measure on Particular Staff Won't Play Above mf

I have a staff that seems to get quieter around the 3rd measure of playback. So I added a "ffff" to that particular measure on that particular staff. That didn't do anything. This particular measure won't play back louder than mezzo-forte. When I add the "ffff" to that measure and it plays back, it ...

I have a document with 17 staves of brass instruments, 3 staves of percussion, 1 staff of timpani, 1 staff of glockenspiel, and 1 staff of violin.

Re: Magnus Choir - Finale 25

At the same time that I posted this post, I also contacted Syntheway support (i.e. Magnus Choir support) and fortunately got this response (which echoes Bill's comment that the plug-in needs to be 64-bit): Since you are using Finale for Windows version 25, it only 64 bit and supports VST 64 bit (x64...

Now, in Finale 25, I cannot seem to get Magnus Choir to even be recognized by Finale. I added the directory which has the plugin (the .dll file), and clicked "...

Playback Inconsistency

Hello, I am running into a playback problem. I am using Finale 25 for Windows. I use Garritan Personal Orchestra 5 for my playback. I am writing a piece for cello and piano. The playback was fine for a while. Now it's not. From the very beginning of the piece, it's as if the "cello player" added som...
