Score merger glitch

Post by Mullen_Music » Thu May 21, 2020 5:48 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to merge four movements into one file, and movement 4 looks like someone smudged ink all over the first staff and everything else is blank. Trying to do anything with it afterward causes Finale to crash instantly. I've tried merging it with a single movement, as well as other files, and every time the same thing happens. The file will open and work just fine on its own. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I've attached a picture of the issue.

select that staff and unlock the measures.
it looks like WAY too many measures are being forced into a single system.

I gave it another look over, and all of the measures with the correct metrical changes are there, but all of the notes have ended up forced into the first three or four measures.

Here's a sample. All of those measures should have music in them.

then try simply accessing the 1st measure in speedy entry, and have it move extra notes (over-filled) into the next measures.

I'm afraid I don't know what caused the problem, I so rarely use "score merger". I can only hope one of my suggestions helps to fix the problem.

I fixed it. What I did was go back to the original file and remove the pickup measure. For some reason that was causing the issue. It's unfortunate that I had to remove it, but at least I was able to find a solution.
