Re: Need help with transposition-HELP!!

So I had them backwards. No problem, I can still do them as soon as the experts teach me what I need to know.

I sent you an email so you could send me the files. Did you get it?

Good luck with the husband's surgery.

Re: Need help with transposition-HELP!!

Vickie, please edit your post remove your email address! You would need a special program like SmartScore or another similar app to do that. Finale can no longer do it, since 2012 or 2014. I don’t mind doing it, but I’m not an expert on transposition, like many of the people here. So I ask the forum...

Re: Unable to Erase a note

Without seeing it, I would speculate that it’s not in the measure where you’re clicking on it. Try clicking a few notes ahead or behind it, and use the arrow keys to step your way to it. Then, it should select and allow you to delete it.

Re: Wouldn't it be great if Finale did what I wanted it to do?

And if nobody else can replicate a problem, how could it be fixed?

And I certainly don’t think that it’s the forum comments that have held Finale back. That blame goes directly to the ownership.

Re: Adding percussion to vocal line

That’s what I’ve done. You can set it as a single line staff, or even a no line staff, and notate it with x-noteheads.

I’m with oldmkvi. I was taught that if a slurred passage contains tied notes, the slur should cover it all.

Make sure you have UNCHECKED Auto-number parts in Score Manager. You may have to do it for multiple changes.

Re: Spacing

It might be something as simple as applying music spacing, followed by update layout. EDIT: Nope. Definitely a flaw on Finale's part. Even with just two measures on a line, it crowds. I tried moving with the beat chart, but that did not survive respacing measures with Music Spacing > Incorporate. Th...

Re: Slurs that flow from below to above

Draw the slur as normal, from the first to the last note. Then, click on the slur, and use the control points (5 small handles) to reshape the slur. Save it until the last steps of layout.

Re: Issues with Imploding music

Thanks, now I understand. I’ve done quite a bit of similar work. If they all have the same lyric, leave them out! Put the parts into different layers: 1 and 2 for the S/A, and 1 and 2 for T/B. (Don’t use 3 and 4.) Implode them, and delete the old staves. Then, enter the lyrics in verse 2, and attach...

Make sure that the MIDI/Audio settings are correct. Do you have sound in other programs?

Have you restarted the computer?

How are you imploding the music? What result are you looking for? Are you doing a piano reduction?

Can we assume you have sound in other applications?

Have you restarted the computer? Trashed the Finale preference files?

Can you post a document where this happens? Even a few measures should be enough.
