Posting an attachment to forum?

Postby Ray3D » Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:49 pm

Finale v. 25, Windows 7 64 bit, (on Macbook Pro running "bootcamp")

If I wish to post, (to the forum), several measures from a long piece that is currently a Finale project, what is the most direct way to do so?

Use the Upload Attachment tab, just below the reply screen.

Thank you, miker. But I am not asking how to "upload" an attachment, but how to "generate" the attachment from selected measures of my score.

I use a Mac, most of the time. Due to MIDI interface issues, I use Finale in PC mode, (bootcamp). I would expect to take a screen shot of the measures in question, then trim it down in Photoshop. Those utilities are on my "Mac" side.

I guess I'll have to look up how to do a screen shot on my PC, then transfer it to my Mac for processing, before posting.


Hmmm. I have no "Windows Key" OR "Prntscn" key on my MacBook Pro keyboard.

OK. Here is the file I had intended to upload earlier. Some measures later, it returns to 12/8 with quarter not equals dotted quarter.

To generate the Finale file, make a copy of your work, and delete everything ahead of and behind the section you want to show us.

Do make a screen shot on a Mac, CMD+Shift+4. Your cursor will change to a (sort of) bullseye. Click and hold, and drag over the area you want.
