I am working on a big band chart for a client and he has his own, specific way he wants his chords notated. I try to honor his wishes and can usually figure out how to create what he wants with a chord symbol.

I work in the Broadway font for notation and for text. Here is the chord symbol in need to create. This one happens to be a B diminished chord with a major 7th. He indicates it with the circle symbol (diminished) and a small triangle symbol for the major 7th. When I try to create this triangle-shape, I cannot find it in the shapes when I try to design this chord?

I can find a triangle shape in the character map for the Broadway Font. How do I get that into my chord design shapes, when I try to create what is needed.

Thanks for the information.

Denver Seifrid,

 

Your description of the problem is hard to understand because you are not talking “Finalespeak”.

Are you saying that you are looking in the dialog box Chord Suffix Selection?

Or are you in the dialog box Chord Suffix Editor?

Peter.....Sorry, but I agree. I was not very clear on what I was trying to communicate to those who might try to assist with my problem.

1. I am in the Chord Suffix Editor

2. When I select Symbol Selection, I cannot find a triangle-shape. I need my jazz chord to have the Chord............B dim with an added major 7. The arranger I am working with simply uses a B with a small circle and a small triangle shape after the "B". He is working in pencil, on his score. He would like me to re-create this in Finale.

I guess I could always create a Text Expression and use it for that B dim add major7 chord. I know I can get that triangle from the Broadway Character Map.

Thanks for your assistance, Peter.

Denny,

 

What font have you set in the Chord Suffix Editor?

- Broadway Copyist?

- Broadway Copyist Text?

 

When I (in the Chord Suffix Editor) set the font to Broadway Copyist, I have the triangle in slot #177.
