Finale user since 1994. Suffered a boot drive crash two days ago. Replaced drive, and reinstalled Windows 10 and Finale 25.5.0.290 yesterday. Copied all my old libraries and font annotation files to their correct folders, from backups.
Now some of the "Smart Slurs Attached to Notes" are all wacky, both on new uses and in previously made files. Oddly, most are okay. Attached are before and after shots.
I can manually adjust them back, but I'd love to know why this is happening and prevent it.

This is one of Finale's difficulties: they need to innovate to keep up with the competition, but some changes will affect existing projects. I do not envy their position, but they do try to meet both competing challenges by asking users whether they want to update to new features (i.e. the articulation-stacking routines) before opening an older project in the new version (26).

 

I'm glad I'm not in their shoes; they face an enormous challenge.

There may be something in your page or printer setup that can be changing this. I've seen similar things, not only in Finale but Word and other apps where layout is involved after doing a system reinstall. Changing the printer settings can sometimes restore it as they may be set to a generic 'universal' system default instead of how you had them.

 

To what J Adrian posted, you need to be 'eyes wide open' when looking at 26 (we all do). If you have downloaded and run the 26 demo, that could also be "what happened". Scroll down to  UPDATING FILES & COMPATIBILITY WITH PREVIOUS VERSIONS and read from there.
