Spacing issue

Post by igor68 » Thu May 28, 2020 3:47 am

Hey friends, does anyone experienced the same problems with the clustering of triplets. I am attaching the file.
I am using Windows 10 and Finale 25.
Thanks!

It's because of your spacing settings--did you intentionally change them? In Document options/Music spacing, click Spacing widths and switch from "Use these values" to "Use spacing width tables." Then respace.

Motet, this was the problem. All fixed now. I did not intentionally switch the setting. It is strange, how could it happened by itself? But, I have learned a new thing.

Than you!

The Finale Default Document setting is "Use These Values".

What went wrong in the original file, then?

I can't say without further testing. I did try Jari's JW Note Spacing plugin and got satisfactory results with many of the options. Beat Spacing (5) is not very satisfying. Note Spacing (4) causes the crowding.

When this was first posted, I entered the music into a default document and it was fine.

Go to the speedy entry tool (looks like an italic eighth note) and then drag the notes to where you want them.

Thanks all, somehow the default spacing option was changed. I followed Motet's recommendations and the problem is fixed now.
