"Type into score" suddenly produced TINY words

Post by Micana Man1 » Mon Jul 08, 2019 11:21 pm

V 25 for Mac.
I'm a very "mediocre" Finale user. After many lead sheets being ok. last night "Type into Score" would only display very, very small lettering! Apparently somewhere I must have pressed a wrong button... Would like to get the original size lyric wording back. By the way, did not consciously change the font. and wouldn't know where/how to do that! Thanks!

Lyrics/Lyrics Window will have a Text menu, where you can specify the font and size.

Maybe post a sample file here for us to troubleshoot.

You seem to be sure that you didn't change any settings. I would shut the computer down and restart everything, if you haven't already. It might be a font problem related to the Mac OS, which a restart sometimes fixes.
