Re: Mac Keyboard does not work for speedy or simple entry.

I don’t know, BT. If he uninstalled and reinstalled the program as he said in the first post, he would have gotten a new prefs file every time. I’m more inclined to think that there is a conflict with another app.

Re: Mac Keyboard does not work for speedy or simple entry.

They’re using Covid as an excuse, so it is certainly taking them longer. But three weeks is ridiculous. Have you tried installing it in a new user account? Maybe something else on the mew computer is conflicting. Rest assured, though, it is fixable. There are too many people using Macs for it to be ...

Re: Mac Keyboard does not work for speedy or simple entry.

Are you a new user? No offense intended, but is it possible you may be doing something incorrectly?

Otherwise, contact tech support. Something is definitely amiss.

Re: rectangle box around measure

Can you post the file? Or even a screenshot?

By the way, you have posted in the Songwriter subforum. If you are using Finale, please repost your question in the proper forum. More people are likely to see it, there.

Mark,

Maybe you could download the demo of the new version, and try opening and exporting your scores from that.

Re: measure spacing

Can you move a measure or two to the previous or following systems?

Can you reduce the page size by a few percent?

Re: Looking for Notehead

The Change utility for noteheads doesn't allow for choosing a different font. JW Change does, but you have to first change the font, then choose Custom notehead. Special Tools is another way to do it. No need to do it as an expression. Zuill I know that JW Change lets you choose a custom font, but ...

Re: Looking for Notehead

It's not in the Maestro font. It is, however, in Maestro Percussion (and a number of others.) I can't however, figure out how to access them from either the Change... Noteheads or JW Change. Can you do it as an expression?

Re: Converting from a Sibelius File?

From Google: To save a Sibelius score as a MusicXML file, go to the Plug-ins menu and select the MusicXML submenu. Then select the “Export MusicXML” item. You will then see a standard save dialog box asking where to save the XML file. By default, this will be the same as your existing Sibelius file ...

Re: Converting from a Sibelius File?

Do you have a PDF? That could be scanned and exported as XML, and imported into Finale.

Do you have the Sibelius files? Maybe someone with Sibelius could open them, and export as XML.

I’ve sent you a PM.

Re: Repeat selection window : no scrolling

There is no scroll bar for me, either. I don't use repeats very often, so I guess I just never noticed. Like David, I just scroll with my mouse.

Repeats and brackets and chords (oh, my)

In this piece, we sing through the entire piece twice, verse and chorus. We repeat it again, but at the end, we shorten the last measure of the chorus by 1 beat, add in the pickup notes, and repeat the chorus again, ending with the full duration. 1. Did I lay it out correctly, or is the 1, 2, 4 not ...
