Windows 7, Finale 25.4

I'm trying to change the swing "this equals this" tempo marking that comes default when you open a new document and are given the preset tempo markings.

The default example given when you open a new document is two eighths = a triplet quarter + eighth. I'd like to change this to a dotted eighth plus sixteenth = triplet quarter plus eighth. The default font is maestro, but I can't find anywhere in the maestro character set where the two beamed eighths figure is, or where I could find the alternative I want.

If i paste the text into Word into Times Roman, the character string is ŒÂ = Œ lj.

Thanks!

The problem is the beam. There is a bar character that will go above the dot, and allow connecting the quarter note to the backwards beamed 16th glyph. Otherwise, you have a gap over the dot.

Since I'm on a Mac, I can't give you the exact entries. I entered (all from Text>Insert>Symbols) Quarter note, overbar, dot, and reverse beamed sixteenth. You will have to look for them, sorry!

That worked. Little complicated, but it worked. Thanks so much.

You're quite welcome.

If it was easy, anybody could do it!
