You need to enter a whole rest rather than use the default rests that Finale puts in every bar. Select those measures, then go to plug-ins/Note, Beam, and Rest editing/Change to real whole rests (only do this where you want to put fermatas). Then you can put fermatas on them.

thanks for this great info , it works for the woodwinds , not for the horn trumpet and timpani , go figure..
not a big problem as long as i copy the score , so it's just for the copying, but i don't know why it doesn't work for the other measures..

Can't say without seeing your file. You can copy the rest with fermata from flute to horn, etc.

scorn,

You have attached a graphic file, not a Finale document.

We can not say much without examining your Finale document.

All you are doing is posting a screen shot. We need to see the actual .musx file.
