Re: Beaming 3/8 and 2/8 notes

The time signature 3/8 has to be redefined as one dotted quarter, the 2/8 as a quarter note, but displayed as 2/8, not 1/4. Then rebeam to the time signature.

Re: JW Plugins disabled by OS10.15.4?

If the problem appeared with the 10.5.4 update, you could try to revert to MacOs 10.5.3, still available on the Apple website : https://support.apple.com/en_US/downloads
Get the combo update, it seems to be recommended to do a complete install.

Re: Finale Line Spacing, is it Adjustable?

Edit the expression.
Select the second line only, and in the Text menu, select Baseline Shift. Enter a small positive value (try 0,1 for instance) to move the second line upwards.

Re: Two Language Versions of Finale

I'll share an experiment I made a few years ago (2011 ?). Next to my main Finale 2011 in English, I installed the French demo (I needed it to make tutorials related to the French version). As both are separate programs, it worked. I think I was able to open both at the same time, if I remember corre...

Re: How to make a vertical line with hooks

Smart shape. Edit the line with 2 hooks and uncheck horizontal.
In the score, hold shift (to keep the line vertical), double click and drag.

Re: desending bass line

Changing the suffix the way motet describes is fine, but it does not imply that the bass line is moving, except if it is a bass part, with the notes specifying it. For the other musicians in the rhythm section of for the bassist if the notes are not present, a succession of alternate bass notes is c...

Re: Adjusting tempo during hyperscribe-recording

Your video shows the correct procedure. It seems that you have discovered a bug, and it is present in Finale 26 for Mac as well (tested). I also tried with a simple expression (quarter note= 200), same problem. It seemed to work correctly in Finale 25 (Prestissimo was added in Finale 26, I found out...

Re: Adjusting tempo during hyperscribe-recording

In the Hyperscribe menu -> Beat Source -> Playback and/or Click, you can define a specific tempo for recording, which is not related to the Playback expressions.

It is a page break. It can be created or cancelled in the Page Layout menu.

Re: Rest with Slash notation

Sure. Any beat or partial measure can be changed into slashes (1 per beat). You just have to "practice" how to select a partial measure. Staff tool. Click outside of the staff, hold the mouse button, and drag into the staff to select a region, even a partial measure. Then apply the staff style (Shor...

Re: Custom beat duration ( 3/♪. )

You can (Document options -> Time Signature) give the denominator a huge vertical value, so that it gets ejected out of the page. Then use an expression for the note.

Re: Canonic utilities

Yes, but 2014.5 is still 32 bit, not 25 & 26.
P.S. : that's one more reason to keep a copy of 2014.5 (also for the video window, which is still available), unless you are on a Mac and you have the latest MacOs (incompatible with 2014.5).
