Flipping existing articulations

Postby jsmcwilliam » Tue Jan 22, 2019 9:40 am

I run Finale 25 under windows 10 and want to flip existing articulations:

1. The manual tells me to mark the articulation and press F, however, doing this has no effect. In the attachment, the second beat, I want to move the dots on E and A to below the beam. Similarly, the third beat A & C and the fourth beat, C & E.

2. Can I first mark all the previously mentioned notes and flip them all at once. They are not a series since C & E, E & A, A & C are intervening notes and do not need to be changed.

I won't swear to it, but I think that's a F26 feature, only. They flip fine there, but not in F25. In fact, the context menus are different in the two programs, as well.

If I'm wrong, someone will be along to correct me, shortly!

You can use the JW Change plugin to help here. It creates a duplicate articulation set to be always on the stem side.

I could not find that plugin in the dropdown list. Is this also an F26 function?

You can download it (free) from here https://www.finaletips.nu/index.php/download You'll need to put it in the right plug-ins folder, but I don't know where that is on Windows. Somebody here should be able to help.
