display song in long form

Post by mcnick » Tue Sep 07, 2021 2:50 am

I have a 2 verse song notated using repeats. Is there a quick way to display the song in long form without repeats?

Should be easy to copy and paste and delete the repeats.

True . But then In a 2+ verse song I have to delete the verse that doesn’t apply. Tedious. Thought there might be a quicker way

Ah, I see. Perhaps in the lyric window, cut and paste the second verse at the end of the first, then click assign, which should go quickly.

Ok thanks. That should help.

I have a number of “hymns” (multiple verses) already in finale that I want to reharmonize individual verses so was looking for a quick way to set it up. I use repeats so it plays back properly.
Still wish finale had an easy way to display song without repeats with one click J
