So, I'm very new to Finale, but I'm trying to figure out the shortcuts in Simple Entry Mode. I thought that if I hold down a number, like 6, the cursor should change to a half note and then I can play in a note and it would notate that note as a half-note. Then If I hold down the 5 it would change to a quarter note and I can play in a quarter note. But, instead, when I hold down a number, like 6, it just starts rapidly stacking notes on top of each other, not even changing to the right note value. Am I missing something?
BTW, I'm using macOS Sierra with Finale 220.127.116.119
