I will try to explain what I am needing to accomplish with a big band drum set part. I have a string of measure with repeat one measure symbols in the measures. I need to place some ensemble "kicks" above the staff, for the drummer to see what rhythm the saxes, trumpets & trombones are playing.
I am using the high-tom for the rhythm and putting it in in layer 3. After I enter the rhythm for the measure, it disappears. All that remains is the one measure repeat, with no ensemble rhythm on the drum part. I am using speedy entry, with use of the computer's keyboard for entry. I can go back to the measure I have entered the rhythm and it will show-up when the "insertion-bar" is highlighted, once again. Move to the next measure with the cursor and the prior notation disappears as soon as the "insertion bar" moves/advances to the next measure.
BTW, I am already using Layer 2 for other drum notation.
What am I doing wrong?
I am running Windows 10 with the latest version of Finale.
