I have Finale. Working on a PC. I need to resize page to 6 3/4" z 10 1/2". Also need to do a cover page in same size.
Also... text that is saved is deleted each time I iopen up file.
As far as resizing your pages, there's a couple of ways to do that. What may work best for you is this:
1. Grab the Page Layout Tool and then go to the menu "Page Layout > Update Page Format For Score" and make sure that option is checked (sorry about the Mac Screen shots, I know you're on a PC, but it should be the same.)
2. Under that same menu, navigate to "Page Layout > Page Size..." and the Page Size box will appear.
3. Select "Octavo (6.75 x 10.5)", and the "All Pages" range should automatically be selected, but if it isn't, be sure to select that
4. Press "OK"
Now to achieve a cover page, it will also be done with Page Layout Tool
1. Select the Page Layout Tool and navigate to "Page Layout > Insert Blank Pages..."
2. Apply these settings:
3. Press "OK"
That should do the trick!
Though there could be a couple of things regarding your text not displaying, it'd be difficult to pin it down without posting a link to the file. But it could be worth trying to do this: Go to "Utilities > Update Layout (control + u)" as well as "View > Redraw Screen (control + d)". Beyond that, we would need to see the file.
Hope this helps!
