Re: Are v25 and v2014 file compatible?

Friends, I use dashed slurs in the current document.
What will happen if I send it to my editor with 2014.5 version?

Thanks.
EDIT: sorry for being boring again, no matter if Finale 2014 is 32 bit, and v25 is 64?

I want to keep that manual adjustments fixed AND at the same time I want them to be included in the music spacing calculation. Upon entry I need them to be placed at the standard distance. I ...

Re: Are v25 and v2014 file compatible?

Completely compatible, but– New features in Finale 25 will not be present when opened in Finale 2014,5, like the new dashed slurs. Make Music publishes "New Features" papers for each version of Finale. These should be given a close look. N. Except these new features, one can open a file and save th...

Re: A single hairpin can be both decres. or cresc.

simply defining a keyboard shortcut for cresc/decresc in the Smartshapes menu.

I use C and D respectively. no need to drag a decresc in the opposite direction to create a crescendo.
This!
And shortcuts to Smart Shape (F4 I use) it is as quick as with pencil.

Windows shortcuts

Friends,
Right now I am on Windows 7 computer.
I have completely forgotten how I can map F-keys to different tools.
On Mac it is the system setting, but I remember on Windows it is Finale setting.
Latest time I used Finale on Win was 10 years ago.

Sorry if I understand you correctly, but if I make whole rest than the measure is not empty. I need a completely blank measure. You can use a custom staff style to make the measures display no rests. A staff style with Blank Notation will also break a multimeasure rest, even if the measures are com...

You should report the bug to the folks in MakeMusic’s Tech Support. However, there is a workaround: 1) Use the Text Tool to create a text block. To edit t...

Smart Shape, insert symbol

In the Smart Shape designer, in the Text field, editing doesn't allow inserting symbols (Inserts – Symbol…). Why? It is very unintuitive/inconsistent, since it is available everywhere else.
Or I am missing something?

Re: Smart shapes and breaking MM rests

Thank you. I see I have to find a workaround.
I must put something and hide, since these measures should look "empty", yet with a free improvisation or similar. Anyway the measures are to be played, therefore my question.

Smart shapes and breaking MM rests

Is it possible that Smart shapes break multi-measure rests?
I use repeating line through several measures, and would like that Finale does NOT create MM for these "empty" measures (applied to one instrument only, not the score).

Re: Trumpet Piccolo transposition

the fingerings for the many grace notes just fell more "under the fingers" with that instrument. Interesting thinking. However, not being myself a brass player it is just an imagination for me; particularly having in mind it is not truly tonal music. I will give the musician an alternative, if he/s...
