double dotted quaver rests

Post by Andreo Basisto » Thu Aug 15, 2019 5:29 pm

Greetings!

I’m working on a piece with lots of double dotted quaver rests and as soon as my back is turned, Finale changes them to quaver, semiquaver, demisemiquaver rests. How can I keep the double dotted rests?

Take a look at
MIDI/Audio menu > Quantization Settings > More Settings

Are dotted rests allowed?

Ah! I might have known it would be something simple! Many thanks, Peter.

“Allow dotted rests in compound meters” was ticked, but “Allow dotted rests in simple meters” was not ticked. All sorted now. I think this is the first time in several years that I’ve been to the Quantization menu!
