Piano Fingering Numbers

Postby djlangen » Tue Jun 11, 2019 11:27 am

I hope someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong.
I'm entering finger numbers in a piano piece and it works fine when the numbering is above the staff, but when the numbers are below the staff, the numbers are inverted. For example, if I enter middle C and E, and enter fingering 1 & 3, Finale places the 1 above the 3. It should place the 3 over the 1. (Middle C is played with the thumb!)

How do I enter fingering numbers below the staff in the correct order? Thanks in advance.

Your forum profile still says Finale 2014.5 - perhaps you should update the info.

Regarding your problem:

a) In what Finale tool were the fingering numbers created?

b) And more important: What are the positioning settings for the fingering numbers? Could you perhaps attach a screen shot?
I suspect that the culprit can be found in the settings.

One possible solution would be “compound” number stacks so that e. g. the stack
3
1
is one item (not two items).

You could create a such stack in the Shape Designer, and then attach the shape as a shape expression, or as a shape articulation.
