Re: Different rest position in score and linked part

My experience is that it can only be done in a part, with limitations. In a part, the only way to unlink a note or rest is to move it. It will become orange, but I don't see any contextual menu (to select or unselect "Show" for instance). As explained by Zuill, only horizontal moves will appear in t...

Re: Different rest position in score and linked part

Thank you, Zuill. You are correct. No problem when the rests are moved horizontally in the part, only vertically.

Re: Upgrading question

If it's Intel, compatibility issues should be limited and hopefully fixed rapidly. We are all waiting for MakeMusic to communicate.

Re: Upgrading question

Yes, exactly, it's probably better to wait for MakeMusic to give a green light (When is a question to which only MakeMusic can answer). Visit their blog in the following days via the link I gave you, and follow this forum.

Re: Different rest position in score and linked part

Strangely, if you move a rest in a part, it becomes orange (= unlinked), but it moves in the score as well.
This abnormal behavior should be reported to MakeMusic.

Re: No sound

A midi interface ? On ? Your profile mentions Finale 2011, but not your MacOs (please add it to your profile, because it could matter). It could be a problem of compatibility.

It looks like the Yamaha is in the input column, but the fact that it is in italics means that it is not active. Is it on ?

The "Search Text and Replace" works in this file. Also replace ä with 8.
There are a few corrupted expressions left, but most of them will be fixed.

Re: technique text in finale 26 is numbers

In this image, I can see that the same sequence of numbers was added, preceding the actual expression text. But even that text seems corrupted (there are many slashes between the letters). In the specific category where the problem appears, have you checked which font is being used and if correct, r...

Re: technique text in finale 26 is numbers

Hard to see anything in your image. The Finale file (even empty) would be more useful.
A shot in the dark : check the font used in that category, and if needed, reapply the correct default font of the category to all the expressions.

Re: Speedy Entry Help

The first problem (superimposition) may be a temporary spacing problem, before Update Layout.
For the second (known) problem, I have noticed that entering a note instead of a rest in the sextolet works (or change a rest into a note with a click of the mouse on the rest).

Re: Chord font

It is a known issue when the percentage of reduction is too important.
One solution : another staff (no staff lines, nothing), reduced with the Resize tool. Chords will be reduced proportionally (Roots and suffixes).

Re: Dynamics below the stave

If you need dynamics sometimes above, sometimes below the staff, you could duplicate the dynamics category and change the default position in the new category. Then you can use the appropriate category each time you enter a dynamic.
