Two titles on one page

Post by jsmcwilliam » Sun Sep 22, 2019 10:01 am

I run version 26 under Windows 10.
I have two short clarinet pieces which I want to be contained on one page. The notes are already in finale with a space between the first and second pieces. My problem is:

1. How to introduce the second title, composer etc.
2. The second piece is in a different key so I don't want the key change reminder at the end of the first piece to be
visible.

1) If it is a solo piece, and if the score is the part, create "standard" text blocks with the Text tool (no "inserts") for the new title and credits.
If you have created a part with modifications of the layout, you may want to attach the texts to a measure rather than to the page or create expressions, which won't move if you change the layout.

2) Document Options -> Key Signatures -> Uncheck "Display Courtesy Key Signature at end of system".

Thanks that works great for me. I also had to repeat the proces for the time signature.

A commonly used solution is an inserted staff system of only one measure.
Use the Staff Tool (staff style) to make this (1-measure) system display no clefs, no key signatures, no time signatures, &c. - in short: de-select everything.
Attach (to this “not displaying” measure) expressions with title, composer &c.

In the last measure before the second piece, in the Measure Attributes, you can select the option
“Hide Cautionary Clefs, Key and Time Signatures”.

Try the JW Start New Piece plugin:

http://www.finaletips.nu/index.php/down ... s-plug-ins

It will automatically reset the time signature, key signature, instrument names, indentation, and all other conventions you need when starting a new piece/movement.

For the title and composer, use the expression tool. Somewhere here on the forum Motet has a document on how to do that.
