Guitar bend editing

Post by campersand » Fri Jul 13, 2018 9:57 pm

Is there a way to manually edit the text that Finale creates OR just enter it myself without having the text automatically created when creating a guitar bend? I'm trying to indicate a two-string 1/4 step bend and for some reason Finale insists on entering "1 1/2" on the lower string.

I don't think there are many who notate for guitar hanging out here. I do quite a bit, but I don't usually deal with bends.

If you want to post a sample of what you're talking about, I'd take a look at it.

Thanks FwL, here you go. It's on the bottom two staves of the 1st page. My workaround was just to move the one bend marking between the two notes, but I'd really rather have one for each note so that it's totally clear. Also, I'm using some custom staff styles so the whole piece might look a little janky on your end, just a warning.

What happens if you hold Shift and Alt down while double-clicking?

I'm not having any luck.

It works! Actually, just alt+double-click works. Thanks!

You're right. I thought I had tried that without success, so I tried combinations. Alt it is.

The manual says control double click is how to do it. I messed around quite a bit and couldn't get anything to work right. Good to know the correct combination.
