I'm having a similar problem. The screen is taking up to a full minute to refresh after something as simple as adding one note or changing the zoom! I've noticed this problem, which makes the program virtually unusable, on the pages of my score that are very busy. And it only just began, after the f...

I've just tried both of your suggestions, Peter. Unfortunately, neither one made a difference.

Still baffled,

mystery tempo change--how to eliminate?

Two "aaargh"s here. The first is that the tempo in my orchestration mysteriously slows down in measure 13 and remains there for the rest of the piece. This without my having put it -- to the best of my knowledge -- any tempo adjustments whatsoever. The second aargh --can't seem to find a way to chan...

Moving staves

Is there a way to move staves? When writing guitar standard notation and guitar tab, Finale (2005a) defaults to 4 sets of staves per page. That leaves too much white space, and I'd like to tighten up the spacing to get 5 sets of staves per page. I can tighten the spacing between the standard notatio...

Thanks...that's one more reason to go Mac.

Any recommendations based on cost and/or glitches, or programs that seem to run pretty much glitch free?

Thanks,

Publishing as a PDF?

Once a piece is finished and ready for the world, is it possible to save it as a PDF file? Or some other printed format that's pretty universally readable?

None of the "save as" options seem to include this, but there must be a way.

Notating slides

Can one use a straight line to notate a slide? The "glissando" function is what I want, but I need a straight line instead of a squiggly line. I've tried to change the shape using the "?" icon and following directions in the help guide, but it just gives me wierd symbols on the first note of the sli...

Baroque lute ledger lines

In Finale you can currently assign enough strings to a lute to accomodate a 13-course instrument. However, it becomes impossibly difficult to read the bass courses. In traditional lute tablature, ledger lines were used, and for the 11th, 12th, and 13th courses, the numbers 4, 5, and 6 were used to d...
