This has happened to me once or twice before, and the only way I have gotten around it is by starting a new file and painstakingly copying all music from one to another. I really don't want to do that again, especially on this pice that is 42 pages of 36 staves each. Hoping someone knows how to fix this!
I was going through for some final editing and typesetting of an orchestral pice. Suddenly on page 11 I see the music extending way past the bottom of thepage. On closer inspection, every staff in the system is doubled. Now, the staves themselves are fine (so far as I can tell, and if I insert an empty bar, for instance, and push the music to the next page, then only the empty bar has the extra staves, not the bars of content. In other words, it seems strongly that there is something about the page that is causing the staves to duplicate.
And note they are only visually doubled - if I select either Piccolo staff, for example, and delete it, then both copies are removed. They are the same staff, just showing up twice.
Originally I was working in Finale 26. I had downloaded 27, but hadn't yet installed it. After fighting this problem, I went ahead and installed Finale 27 hoping the problem might go away, but that is not the case. The problem persists. Can anyone help me solve this? I can send the file if needed.
Finale 220.127.116.11 running on Windows 10.
Thanks for any help!
