 I am working on Mac OS 10.12.3 (Sierra)

I used a number of tools to produce a unique notation that looks great on the screen but it will not print correctly. All other measures in the piece print fine, but in the measures using the unique notation, there are many boxes with question marks over the music. The same occurs when creating a pdf or postscript version.

I was hired to notate this piece according to certain specification and was able to accomplish it in Finale. My problem is that I cannot now print out a copy of the final product or send them a pdf.The postcript version also has the same question marks.Here is a screen shot of one of the measures using the notation as viewed in Finale:
Now here is a screen shot of what it looks like when printing (also in the pdf or postcript versions):I can send a Finale file for review as well if that would help.
Thanks in advance for you help!!!Marc WooldridgeProfessor of PercussionIndiana Wesleyan University

Well, you certainly produced a unique notation. Apparently the font slot you chose for your invisible notehead had something in it in the print font selected. Symbol font slot 9 and 10 in the Maestro font produced acceptable results both in PDF and on my HP Laserprinter.
