Re: Converting from a Sibelius File?

Again, Sibelius 8 has MusicXML export, even without Dolet.
File -> Export -> MusicXML
P.S. : I have no idea whether Dolet would produce better results or not.

Re: Converting from a Sibelius File?

Don't recent versions of Sibelius (from version 7) have a MusicXML export function (which would mean you don't need Dolet) ?

Re: Repeat selection window : no scrolling

A larger number of items doesn't make the scrolling bar active, either.
That bar is just inactive (Mac). Default file :

Repeat selection window : no scrolling

In Finale 26 and 25, the scrolling bar in the Repeat Selection window doesn't work for me. No cursor, and clicking on it doesn't do anything. Fortunately, one can navigate in the list with the arrow keys.
Did anybody else notice this ?
(I'll report it to MM support)

Re: Audio and visual playback issues

Your profile doesn't mention which version of MacOs you use. Finale 26 requires 10.12 (Sierra) at the minimum.
P.S. : have you tried to restart the Mac ?

On OSX I use Keyboard Maestro (indispensable) "Click from found image", which clicks the identified go-left bar icon. (sample graphic attached). Offsets the click 65 pixels right for moving right.
Thanks for the tip (Mac). It works.

Bug : repeat text, measure width = 0, select Repeat Tool : Finale quits

Bug confirmed by PC and Mac users of Finale 26 :
Try this :
1) Repeat Tool : add a repeat text (such as D.C. al Coda)
2) Measure Tool : for that measure, set width to 0
3) Click on the Repeat Tool
Finale quits.

Re: Missing playback cursor when scrolling playback is disabled.

As far as I know, this is the way Finale behaves. • Scrolling activated : pages are changing, cursor is visible • Scrolling desactivated : pages don't change, cursor is not visible I wished there would be a third option : No cursor, but pages changing. Unless I'm wrong, this is not possible for the ...

Swing 16ths doesn't work after using composite (2+2+2+2/8)

The method is well known (8/8, Swing in Playback Controls, Composite 2+2+2+2, Display as 4/4). Several users report that the playback effect of Swing 16ths stops working after applying (for correct beaming) Composite 2+2+2+2/8.

Re: Adding natural sign (accidental)

Those who have Keyboard Maestro and a Mac without a numeric keypad can define a keyboard shortcut (on the main keyboard) which triggers the missing keys (asterisk, tuplets, Clear key). See image :

Re: measure numbers

Without seeing the file... :

• Edit Measure Regions has 2 sets of parameters : one for the score and one for the linked parts. Make sure that both are defined correctly. And "All views" selected.

You don't need to record the full screen, you can also select a region of the screen, or a window. The scrolling bar can be unchecked in the Playback Controls window, but in this case, unless there is a trick I don't know, only the first page will be displayed. If each page has to be completely stat...

Re: How to... 3 issues

If it is what you want, you can have an expression display in a part only. In the score, right click on the handle of the expression, uncheck "Show". Then select "Unlink in All Parts". Go in the part, and check "Show'. The Tempo expression will only be visible in that part.

Re: How to... 3 issues

Indeed, a staff style which is applied to a staff affects the barlines inside that staff . If you want barlines between staves to be hidden in some places, try creating different staff groups for different regions, some of them including less staves.
