I recently purchased SSPro and as several of our forum experts have testified, once I spent a little time with the quick reference guide, I found the recognition pretty good and error correcting quick, especially with the dual windows showing the original on top and the scanned version below. My question now for you SSP expert users is how to get Finale to recognize the part imported as a transposed one. I'm so used to importing a TIF file into Finale, and specifying the instrument so Finale knows the concert vs transposed key. Now, after setting the playback instrument in SSP to, say Alto sax Eb, and exporting as XML into Finale, Finale doesn't see it as an Eb part. In the Score Manager it may say Alto, but it also says "no transposition", so they key you see on the part has been recognized as the concert key. I searched through the SSP manual, but couldn't find an answer. I can see this will be a big problem if I try to scan and export a multi horn score into Finale! I did try indicating the transposition in SSP (far right column in Playback console) but that didn't seem to make any difference. Nor did changing the instrument to a C instrument -- nothing happened in terms of the key in the recognized part changing. There must be something I'm overlooking!
