Move items on the score

Hello again,
I would like to move rest or little note on the score, graphically speaking, not musically speaking. There is indeed some rest which are just put on a note from another voice, I would like to move it just a little upward so everything can be seen easily.

Re: Multiple dots

Found ! The keyboard short cut in the user's manual are wrong for laptop (even the laptop set section). The right answer is maj + :
It makes your cursor as a dot, with which you will click on a note to augment its duration. What an awful process to discover for such a simple thing !

Re: Multiple dots

Of course my macbook has a period, but when the note is selected, if I press the period key, no dot appears.

Multiple dots

Hello,
I would like to put a double dot next to a note. I followed the user's manual, but it doesn't work. They say to press the dot on the numpad, but I have a macbook only, and the usual dot (maj + ;) doesn't do the job. how can I do ?

Re: Eighth note

Everything works perfectly ! Thanks so much !

You're right, my music is not simple so I need advanced tools. Maybe I should train with simple existing scores, writting them in finale as an exercise.

Re: Eighth note

I have still a problem with the writing of measures which do not respect the metrics. Here is an example of a Rachmaninov concerto. How can I write in finale a group of 5 notes like that :

Re: Eighth note

Problem not solved.

When I press F1 (macbook pro), nothing happens except the screen light settings. I really need a complete user manual, my problems are really basic and I’m already lost…

I can’t find the backslash on my keyboard.

And I’m glad I did it, this software is superb. So congrats to the finale team. I’m writing my studies on nume...
