I'm working with the free download of Finale Notepad 2012. Been my go to program for arranging a Cappella music a while, but I've found it has one limitation: I can't for the life of me figure out how to add in *specific* tempo changes mid score. I've looked up multiple sources on how to do this, but it seems my expressions tool doesn't have the same capabilities as what these other, I guess, "versions" of Finale Notepad 2012 have? I've attached a photo to this post to show what shows up in my expressions tool (sorry if the photo is really large):
No side bar giving me the option to make my own expressions, and very limited expressions already included in comparison to what I've seen in the screenshots from others who have shown solutions.
EDIT: Accel., rit., and a tempo all affect the playback in kind, but I have no way of controlling those tempos; there simply doesn't seem to be an option for me to edit in specific tempo changes for even those.
Does the free Finale Notepad 2012 version just not have the capability of adding in tempo changes mid score?
Thanks in advance for anyone who can help!
