My List

So, on this Finale forum, there are a few people who know the program amazingly well. Also on this forum, there are a few people who know notation amazingly well. I count myself mediocre in both realms, but I have read much. The things I write below are informed by Read, Stone, and Gould. If you are...

Re: Rehearsal letter too small on ossia staff

I know I can make an expression to replace the rehearsal letter and bypass the letter in the sequence, but I'm just looking for a better solution. I wouldn't bypass the letter in the sequence, as the linked parts will need it as is. I'm not sure what the ossia staff needs for a linked part, but the...

Rehearsal letter too small on ossia staff

Hello! I'm editing an orchestra score for a friend. There's a system where the top staff is an ossia part. The ossia is a smaller staff that is hidden throughout the rest of the movement. The rehearsal letter on that system is too small. Is there a way to fix the size of the rehearsal letter? I know...

Re: Staff spacing with optimized systems

Thank you everyone!

Staff spacing with optimized systems

Hello! I'm working on an orchestra score and I put extra space above the strings. When I optimize out the staff right above the strings, the extra space goes away. Is there any way to fix this globally without having to manually add space for each system? Thanks!

Re: Linked staves

Hi Zuill! I attached a small example illustrating the problem. (The unusual margins are because it's part of a dissertation.)

Linked staves

Hello! I'm editing an orchestra score for a colleague. She has two staves both labeled Violincello & Double Bass. One is optimized out. Whenever I make a change to one, the other changes. If I delete one staff, the other disappears. They are linked somehow. How can I unlink them? Thanks! Finale 2014...
