Finale's misspelling of cue name

Post by David Ward » Thu Aug 27, 2020 8:19 pm

This is odd and hardly a disaster, but note Finale's automatic spelling error in the cue name (which transfers to the score/part). Piano LH is correct but it provides the name Paino RH - Oh what a pain! (as it were).

Do other people experience the same misspelling?

It's trivial, as I usually modify the cue names anyway (eg Contrabass here should be Contrabass Clarinet or CB Clar. for my purposes, which elsewhere in the piece will be Clar. or B Clar. as appropriate.

Of course I have to admit, the carelessness might be mine. I don't recall naming these piano staves individually, but it's possible that I may have done. Paino RH and Piano LH both show up in the Score Manager, so that's obviously where I need to correct the RH one.

Possibly user error. As you noted, this list is taken from the Score Manager.

After a bit of trial and error, definitely user error.
