I have not had a problem with this before, ever. I am not able, now, to enter dynamics. A week ago, I was able to on a particular file. I had been working on a new file in the last week, and I tried to enter dynamics as I always had. What came up appears to be what comes up with one is using the lyrics tool. I am unable to double click on a note or measure and then add the dynamics. I went back to the old file to see if the same things was happening, and it is. So, I am now not able to enter dynamics on any file. I have never had this problem and i have been using this version of Finale for about 6 months.
