How to remove swing?

Post by linty_lintball » Tue Mar 26, 2019 2:12 am


I added a swing notation by going expression selection > tempo marks > "♫ = ♩ ♪ ", but now i cant remove it from the playback. All of the advice I've found from my googling just tells me how to fix it if I have the full version of Finale, but I feel like if you're able to add swing you should be able to remove it?

I don't know if it has anything to do with the swing menu (midi > swing), but I'm not able to do anything with it as it's greyed out; I've never actually been able to/known how to use that option. I've included a screencap of the greyed out menu.

I run Windows 10 Pro on a Surface Pro 3 i3, and my program is Finale Songwriter 2010.

It looks like Swing is set to None, even though it is greyed out, so I don't think that is the issue. Can you post your file here so we can examine it? Even if we open it in Finale, we might still be able to help find an answer.
