Re: Separating text in layers of one staff of a vocal score

Do you go to Lyrics/Adjust Baseline first, before entering the notes (this is a simple split on the first tenor staff), or do you do this after entering the notes in layer 2?

Separating text in layers of one staff of a vocal score

Struggling with how to separate the lyrics text in a vocal score staff in which I have two layers. I have the notes entered but the separate lyrics are running on top of each other. Trying all kinds of things. User manual isn't helping much. This is literally only an issue in this arrangement for tw...

Re: Spoken word/rap notation

Thanks for your help, everyone. Right click and apply staff style worked great.

Re: Spoken word/rap notation

Unfortunately, neither of these are working. I'm at a loss to understand why they aren't.

Re: Spoken word/rap notation

So I selected the region (did it two different ways - simply clicking on the region and expanding with additional measures using the shift key, and also by using Edit/Select Region) and then went into Tools/Staff and then Staff/Define Staff Styles. I selected X-noteheads in available styles and clic...

Re: Spoken word/rap notation

Thank you, Nick. Regarding your first suggestion, I don't want to change the entire staff, just one section. Is it possible to have a staff style for select measures?

Spoken word/rap notation

I am having trouble figuring out how to notate spoken words/rap with the "x" notation, rather than a regular note head. And I want it on an already existing solo line, not a new staff.

Re: Finale 2014 Tempo Settings Don't Work

Thank you to all who pitched in to help. Ultimately, in the Expression Selection dialog box, I clicked on the expression that I added (qtr = 184), clicked Edit under Tempo Marks, and, rather than have Match Playback to Metronome Marking Text checked, I left that unchecked and checked Set to Value un...

Re: Finale 2014 Tempo Settings Don't Work

I found it. No, that box is not checked. Should it be?

Could you help me find that dialogue box? I'm having trouble. I'm very new to Finale.

Re: Finale 2014 Tempo Settings Don't Work

Thank you for your response. I did all of the steps you recommended and it still plays back very slow, not at the tempo noted in the expression at the top of the music or the tempo marked in Playback Controls (both qtr note = 184). Any other ideas? This is baffling me. I am, admittedly, a new Finale...

Re: Finale 2014 Tempo Settings Don't Work

I am having the same problem, the playback tempo is very slow relative to the tempo marking in the Playback Controls. I do have a tempo marking at the beginning of the piece but it is set the same (in my case, qtr note = 184). I understand that Playback controls are third in line, tempo marking at t...
