Scrolling through the score with Keyboard Shortcuts

Post by danielschellmus » Sat Jan 15, 2022 10:41 am

Hi
Finale 27.1, Windows 11


How to scroll through the score, going from bars to bars, - advancing from one bar, or going next page for instance - without using the mouse and the < an > commands.
I know that in SPEEDY ENTRY you can use the > and < commands, but I would like to do that just in SCROLLING mode.
I am in Score view, CTRL E.
I tried using some commands recommended in the Help, using combinations of CTRL, ALT, > < HOME END... But nothing works...
Thanks for the help
Daniel

Nothing built in to scroll one measure. If you have an external macro program, you can perhaps teach it to do that. For example, I have mapped Shift+PgDn to Alt+U<Up-arrow><Enter>; Alt+U selects the Measure: box at the bottom of the display and Up-arrow increases the measure number by one. I have an analogous thing for Shift+PgUp, of course. This leaves the mouse position unchanged.
