PJRasmussenJazz,

Take a look in Document Options - Stems
* What are the stem length settings?

Also, take a look in Document Options - Barlines
It looks like the Barlines have the same thickness as the Staff-lines.
I would increase the Barline Thickness, so that the Barlines stand out.
Thanks!

Re: Format Questions

Yes, of course you're right about the dynamics. It's kind of lost up there, though, perhaps because of the Andantino. Maybe move it down a little. I believe your syllabification is wrong in mm. 6-7. Here is the Ricordi (full) score. "ste in" is a liason. Probably the slur should begin on the quarte...

Re: Format Questions

Thanks for your help. I am part of that Facebook group, but since I was actually looking for Finale settings I thought I'd try here. I'm experimenting with line width's etc. For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure all vocal dynamics go above the staff, to avoid clashing with the lyrics. Thanks again! PJ

Hello, I've just completed a simple transcription using Finale for the first time. I'd appreciate any engraving tips to improve readability, as well as settings to tweak for creating standard Finale equivalents to Sibelius House Styles. For instance, I'm actually doing arrangements of three pieces f...

Re: November 2 Document Style Disappeared?

Hi Miker, Yes, I downloaded and installed it. I was surprised when I opened Finale 2014 and right in the startup screen by engraving and handwritten it had November listed as a default. It said it was a template for the November font style. Downloading the demo, I was surprised to see it disappear, ...

November 2 Document Style Disappeared?

Hello, I'm switching to Finale from Sibelius for a couple of reasons, but one big reason is Finale's compatibility with third-party fonts. I recently purchased November 2, and my old version of Finale (2014), had a document type all set up for that font. I just downloaded the demo trial of Finale 26...
