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...

Lyrics -- how NOT to copy?

When copying staff notation to tab, the lyrics are copying as well. I don't need a second set of lyrics -- how can I prevent them from being copied with the music?

Thanks,

Clare

Michel, the initial value was set when I first created the document.

Just figured it out. Using the Expression button, I was able to delete that initial value. Then it was easy to use the plug-in to set the new value.

Thanks to both of you for your help.

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,

Great memory, Peter! Yes, it's the 2005 version. This is very strange. Following your instructions, the tempo does change. Progress. But it only changes when I put the tempo change in measure 2. When I try the exact same tempo change in measure 1, it won't override the tempo that I originally set wh...

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.

It doesn't seem to matter what value I put in. I've tried from 20 to 400, and it all plays back at the same tempo. I didn't use any text expressions, but did set the inital tempo at 90 (quarter note). It is defaulting to that no matter what I do.

What's happening??

Thanks,

changing initial temp

The initial tempo I set for a piece is not quite right and needs to be changed. But everything I've found in Finale Help for changing the tempo pertains to changing it in the body of the piece.

How does one change the tempo for the entire piece?


Thanks,

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...
