I have noticed in version 25 that - besides the tempo tool being eliminated - tempo changes such as "rit." rallentando" and "accelerando," as well as fermatas do not work. Also, sometimes in playback, tempo markings such as (q=120) are often ignored in real time playback mode when going from one tempo to the a new tempo (with or without rit. or accel. being employed), but if I begin playback at the point of the new tempo, it is observed. However, in audio export mode, it does not observe tempo changes. Any clues, or solutions?
I am running OS Sierra v.10.12.2 with Finale v.22.214.171.124
