Finale 26 and Expression/Articulation Tool

Post by Nick Mazuk » Sat Oct 13, 2018 4:23 am

I downloaded Finale 26 to try it out.

With Finale 25, to enter an expression without a hotkey you double click and the expression dialogue box comes up. With Finale 26, it defaults to putting down arco.

Now, I cannot enter a tempo marking of any sort.

A similar thing happens articulations. The default is a ° (harmonic).

Any suggestions on how to get to the dialogue boxes?

It sounds like the virtual stuck key syndrome. A reboot usually cures it.

P.S.: I just checked and the letter O key triggers Arco in Expressions, and the harmonic articulation in Articulations. That's what's happening in your case. The old stuck key bug has bitten.

A restart fixed everything. Thanks Zuill.
