Re: Adjusting playback volume for piano left/right hands

If you want individual dynamics in each hand, you have to give each staff its own midi channel (ScoreManager). Even to each layer if needed.

Re: Setting playback tempo?

Scrubbing playback could also be helpful. Opt+Spacebar (Mac), Ctrl+Spacebar (Windows) and drag the mouse over the music (without clicking).
Also possible for 1 staff. Add Shift to the keyboard shortcut.

1) According to the MakeMusic website, Finale 25.5 is not compatible with MaOS 10.15. 10.10 - 10.14 max. https://makemusic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/216545087-Finale-Notation-Software-System-Requirements read more : https://makemusic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360036288573-Finale-Notation-Pro...

Re: Some issues with Finale that I've not figuered it out yet

1) Double click on the handle of the number 1 and apply motet's suggestion to the first ending (1, 3), with alternate text "1" if you prefer. It is not necessary to change anything to the second ending, I think.

Re: Graphic Export (selection) hot key?

In the Mac System Preferences, you can add keyboard shortcuts to the menus of Finale which don't have any.
A more powerful alternative would be Keyboard Maestro.

Re: Multiple dots

Yes, maybe (or is it another language ?), and the fact that it is a MacBook Pro. I have an extended AZERTY keyboard, French MacOs, and in Speedy, the dot on the numeric keypad works fine : it produces all the dots needed. But on the main keyboard, it produces.. a grace note (like ; or G). P.S. : Shi...

Re: Survey: Finale interface

Considering the learning curve of Finale, I voted for No. If we have to learn a new interface, we might as well learn Dorico. Bug fixes... Smart evolutions are welcome (many feature requests have been submitted, but not implemented). Some tools really deserve a serious revamp, maybe one at a time (S...

Re: Can the tempo of "Swing!" be changed?

AFAIK, an expression can only contain 1 playback instruction at this point. So you will need 1 for swing, 1 for tempo. You can of course add a tempo value to the first expression (Swing) but it will only be visual. You'll need a second expression (Tempo).

Re: What exactly is Spanish Finale on macOS?

It is probable that the MakeMusic team includes some Spanish speaking developers (not rare in the US), and considering the huge Spanish market, MM apparently thought it was a good investment to develop that version internally.

Re: What exactly is Spanish Finale on macOS?

There are French, German, Italian versions of Finale (etc... ?). Each of them has been translated by local companies (IPE Music, Klemm,...) and is a separate application. Having a multilingual Finale looks like a good idea at first sight...but let's not forget that the MakeMusic team is rather small...

Re: Setting parts format in advance never works

There are no parts in your file, just a score.
If I generate them, indeed, they don't match your Page Format -> Parts parameters. Redefine pages fixes it, as I suggested.

Re: Setting parts format in advance never works

The cause is unclear until we can look at the file.
In the meantime, in the Layout menu, redefine pages (parts only) to apply the parameters of the Page Format -> Pages.

For these shapes, there are 2 handles when in the Articulation tool. Select the top one (the one on the shape) to delete the articulation, or use the Selection tool to select the articulation and delete it.
