Mensurstrich and some other questions

Post by sabriel1206 » Thu Mar 26, 2020 6:51 pm

Hello. Is there a way to do Mensurstrich (barlines between staves) in Finale? Is there a way to add the small section before the actual piece at each line with the original clef/tactus etc. as in this example (http://www1.cpdl.org/wiki/images/8/86/P ... ltetur.pdf).

Thank you so much!

1) Mensurstriche is one of the options in Group Attributes.

2)The “small section before the actual piece” can be done “manually” by positioning two systems next to each other.
But you can save some time by using the plug-in Create Coda System:
Plug-ins menu > Measures > Create Coda System…

The “secret” for positioning two systems next to each other is here:
Page Layout Tool.
Page Layout menu > Avoid Margin Collisions (de-select this)
De-selecting {Avoid Margin Collisions} allows for negative values in the Edit System Margins window.

The plug-in Create Coda System automatically de-selects {Avoid Margin Collisions}.
