Michel, does stopping and starting that way include HP?

Re: NotePerformer Ignoring Slurs During Mid-score Playback

Michel is correct. It's a legacy of the days when loading HP could take a noticeable amount of time, so this was a way to avoid that.

Re: dead horse

Perfect Layout needs to be a standard part of Finale as do a couple of the JW plug-ins. Of course PL and JW need to be compensated for their work so perhaps there could be levels of Finale. Just like Sibelius offers today. Finale "Ultimate" could be offered at the top tier. It could even have bette...

Re: Simple way to extend length of fermata?

Educated wild-ass guesses: My first thought was to duplicate the fermata and adjust the playback, but that seems to be an HP function, rather than one you can change. Maybe in the MIDI editor? I have no idea if that would work the same with a VST, since I don't know how that stuff works. Or maybe a ...

Re: dead horse

The two biggies they bragged about smufl and file sharing mean nothing to my and my way of music. Update the mixer and the navigation tools and the print function, that would help me for starters. A more modern GUI would be nice too. I agree about smufl and sharing. In my life, mixer and nav tools ...

Re: Switching layers

Layers were the first keys I remapped, many moons ago. Since I really only need layers 1 and 2, they are on F5 and F6. I’ve since remapped the entire F row on a perfectly logical system that only I can understand.

Set your Mic source to Built-in Microphone, and your output to the Air Pods, and see if that works.

Re: Tuplets? Triplets? They're Not Working.

Of course you can. It wouldn't be much of a program if you couldn't. It all depends on how you enter the triplet. Here is link to a tutorial on how I do it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/weehrytsb4x0wao/Tuplets%20with%20Simple%20Entry.pdf?dl=0 I'm sure that others will weigh in with their preferred meth...

When you hover the cursor over the vertical expansion line does it change to a double arrow as it should?

F2014 Score Manager columns won’t expand

My voice teacher has F2014 installed on a Windows Surface machine. In his Score Manager, the major columns: Instrument, Voice, etc. are fine. But things like the Mute/Solo, Volume, and Pan are squeezed down to where you can see the first letter or so at the top of the column, but no more. I can get ...

Re: Output volume per layer

I still like my way, since it allows resetting the levels with sliders, rather than changing numbers. Simply add two staves, one under the treble staff, and one under the bass. Then use Staff Polyphony > Staves > Split from Layers. In the mixer, you can control volume and panning. Try both ways. Wha...

Re: Output volume per layer

I would use JW Staff Polyphony to split a copy of the score into 4 staves. Then, use the mixer to adjust volumes. Takes just seconds.

Yes, with “off the wall” tuplets, sometimes random rests are generated. I fill my tuplet, and then delete the rests.
