MacOS Sonoma

Finale v26

How do I create my own technique text with the line and arcs around it? I've tried duplicating the ones in Finale but the line on top disappears when I edit them.I'm referring to the ones like STRAIGHT, MUTE, CUP and so on below.

… I've tried duplicating the ones in Finale but the line on top disappears when I edit them …

 

The “line on top” is made of “zero-width” font characters inserted between the letter characters.

 

Try this:

In the Expression Designer, in the text field, click to insert the blinker.

Then, move the blinker left-right with the arrow keys.

You will note that the blinker sometimes does not seem to move.

This happens when the blinker passes a “zero-width” character.

 

You can copy one of the “zero-width” characters to the Clipboard, and paste it where needed.

To select a character, hold down Shift while hitting the arrow key.

If Peter's suggestion does not work, you may have to upgrade to Finale 27 for Sonoma compatibility and MakeMusic Support.
