Re: saving - trouble

I have no idea how it worked for you. Very hard to "move on." This is a major problem for Finale if I can't save changes. The file worked fine for me. I added a chord, and closed the file.

Re: saving - trouble

The file worked fine for me. I added a chord, and closed the file. I got the standard Save Changes? screen, said Save, and it did.

If a copy of the file is working correctly for you, just shake your head and move on.

Re: Finale Copyist Font

Zuill, could you post a link to that page, please?

I don’t think you have to buy the upgrade to get the fonts. But if you can’t do that, you can download the demo. The fonts remain, even if you delete the demo.

Re: Finale Copyist Font

It appears the Finale no longer has things like font packs for download anymore. All that appears on the "Downloads" page are my registered products.

Go to your account, and you should be able to download a fresh copy of F25.

And maybe uninstall 27, until it's really ready for use?

Re: Tremolo is not working

And furthermore, if you add the 2 and the 7, you get 9. Apply its cube root of 3, as Zuill noted. Write the 9 three times.and you have 999. Invert that, and it’s 666. Maybe we should be reading the Book of Revelations, rather than the Finale manual.

Now, where did I put my tinfoil hat?

Good idea. I have definitely put F27 in the Don't Use It, Yet drawer, and I'm sticking to F26.

Space systems evenly with F27

I have a single staff piece of about 25 measures, that only take up about 2/3 of the page. Page Layout > Space systems evenly seems to have no effect, regardless of the settings in the dialogue box. It worked fine in F26. Has anyone else experienced this? Further info: This was a piece scanned and e...

Re: Cannot show the hidden staves...

It might help if you do your composition in Scroll View, and only switch back to page view when you're ready to work on the layout.

Re: Range of a part

Either way seems to work. The Handbells Used (which works on any doc) shows them graphically, while the Find Range plugin displays them as MIDI numbers.

Re: Range of a part

The only thing that quickly comes to mind is temporarily paste it onto a handbell template. I think that has a plugin to show the bells needed, and that would give you the high and low.

Re: Finale 27 compatibility with Big Sur

Wasn't that heat a pleasure? Not. We had one a number of years ago, and people were standing at the Home Despot for hours in that kind of heat to get a window unit, and I was one of them. Shortly thereafter, I had mini-splits put in the house. And they've been great. But guess what went toes up on t...

Try copying the faulty doc into an F26 template.

Since you’re on a Mac, will Preview do what you need? You’ve already got it. I use it constantly for combining PDFs from Pages and my drafting program. It ain’t Adobe, but it’s free!

Re: Tuplet subdivisions too short?

It looks like you’re having the problem on the last beat. That’s a common issue.

There are a couple of ways around it. Take a look at this tutorial I wrote up:

Re: Finale 27 ignores my manual adjustments

Please read up on Snap to Grid.

It appears from the comments I've seen that the presets in F27 are different from what they were in earlier versions.
