Re: Graphically moving rests

Applying music spacing should clear up that sort of collision, in most cases. If it doesn’t, you may have too much on the staff. You can move notes side-to-side with either the Note Position Tool, which moves ONLY the note or rest, or the Beat Spacing Chart, which will move everything on that beat, ...

Re: Playback tempo

Select the area with the selection tool, right click, and choose Clear Selected Items. In the next dialogue box, click NONE to uncheck everything. Then, check the MIDI data, and hit OK.

Not so! Start and stop playback with the real stop/start controls. Spacebar/click bypasses HP by design.

Re: Sol-Fa Input plug-in

Not quite what you want, but there is a Staff Style for Alpha Notes Solfege. You could enter the notes conventionally, and apply the staff style to show the D-R-M. Personally, I've never been able to use this to my satisfaction, because to see the letters in the noteheads, you have to enlarge the vi...

If you think that’s cool, take a look at JW Change!

Jari makes these plugins available free of charge, but he accepts (and deserves!) donations.

Or, possibly there's MIDI Tempo Data overriding the Expression.

In which case, you might try clearing MIDI data.

Re: Speedy Entry with dotted notes

There is a Rhythm Copy in JW Plugins. Another option would be to copy the measure as many times as needed, and use the repitch tool.

Re: Condensing scores

Take a look at the plugin window, and you will see a number of broad categories. Clicking on one of them will give you a submenu, with more options, As you click on them, you should be able to figure out what each one will do. Note that you actually have to have something selected - staves, measures...

Re: Missing note from Tuplet group

Yes, I get the rest as well. I guess I’m just so used to it, I delete it without even thinking about it. And like I said, this is only with the more complex tuplets. I would guess that the rests serve as placeholders, and deleting them causes the program to lose count. Speaking as a COMPLETE idiot a...

Re: Missing note from Tuplet group

I have no trouble with tuplets. The only issue with the more complex combinations (like this one) might be an extra rest at the end. BFD. Forward arrow if needed, DELETE.

(More complex = anything more than 3 in the space of 2)

It worked for me, too. Simple Entry on the Mac.

Are you entering the notes with the mouse, or from the computer keyboard, or some other way?

Re: Finale 27?

I would be happy if they just let me choose Stacked Alterations off by default, rather than on. I don’t use them, I don’t need them, I don’t want them. But when I scan a score with, as an example, a four note chord with an accent, when the XML comes into Finale, I have four accents, nicely stacked. ...
