My piece is 4/4 until m20, which changes to 7/16.
At least it was until this morning! No meter change in m20!
The most wierd thing is, the oboe riff was answered in the next bar by the clarinet, just as it was when there were 7 16th notes between them. It LOOKED like there STILL was 7 16ths in each bar.
UNTIL - I clicked with Speedy Entry in m20. After clicking out of it, two new rests appeared to fill up the 4/4 bar: a 1/16th and a half rest!It's an orchestra piece - all the bars from m20 on behaved this way.
Since I blame myself for everything, I started thinking of all the things I had done wrong in the past three days After a while, I narrowed them down to things I had done while working on my music! ;) I did expert a percussion track from Performer, opened it as a new Fnale file and pasted it into a new staff in my main document. PERHAPS I had not included the Conductor track when exporting and THAT caused the problem? Is that possible?
[If so, is this a "feature": can Finale change a piece to a new meter, keeping what is in each bar the same as what is in the newly metered bars?]
BONUS QUESTION: I tried opening my document with the correct meter changes and pasting in m1-18 of the piano part from the document that has no meter change. I get "Finale Error occured. ID = -15" "While attempting to access "EnigmaTempxxxx".
I Googled and it seems Makemusic doesn't list the error messages its software emits. WHat is error -15?
It's an Engima, indeed!
