I am experiencing some behavior in Finale that I can't figure out. It must be something I'm doing, but can't see what it is. I am using the latest version of Finale on Windows 10.
1. I have an issue with a Poco Ritard that doesn't end. I have it inserted in a measure, followed by an "a Tempo" in the following measure. The playback works OK, but the Ritard doesn't end - 10 measures later, the tempo has degraded about 25% or so. What is the magic word or phrase I need to use to stop the ritard process?
2. Similar problem with Diminuendo. (Dim.) How do I let the playback process where to end it - it just fades into nothingness.
3. Different issue - I am trying to insert a Fermata over a note. I click on the articulation tool, select the note I want to have the fermata installed over, then go through the dialog boxes to select the correct sign (#10) , and click on Select, and then OK. Nothing is inserted. I tried zooming in on the section in question, but nothing shows up. The note that I am trying toi do this on is the second of two eight notes that are tied together (same pitch - used the note tie tool to insert the notes. I have used this technique before, and never had it do this before.
Thanks in advance; any help is appreciated.
