Expression tool (tempo marking) not working

Postby MattBoard » Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:32 am

I'm trying to insert a swing playback in a score I'm arranging. I've tried both the default swing tempo mark and one I've custom-made myself; no matter how many times I insert it, it doesn't appear in the score and it doesn't change the playback.

I'm using Finale 25 on a MacBook Pro. The score is arranged from a MIDI file that I imported, which was composed in Cubase.

Any help much appreciated! Thanks!

I suggest that you attach a (small) Finale sample document here.
Probably someone here in the forum can examine your document, and find the culprit.

Without examining an actual Finale document, we can only guess.

In your attached document the Score List looks like this:
