In Note Entry (speedy and simple), the "Too Many Beats in This Measure" box should contain an option to CANCEL the note entry task you were about to do. To date, Finale forces you to enter notes, regardless, even if you've decided you don't want to. This then compels you to go through undo task(s) that you were *forced* to do by Finale. Waste of time and nuisance. Hope this helps. Thanks!
