Hi,

I have six line in the lower staff for piano. No clue how it came there, but also no clue how to get rid of it. Any suggestions?

To add to the description of the problem: I also have two clefs in the staff; it looks like it doubled ....

… I have six line in the lower staff for piano …

… I also have two clefs in the staff …

 

My first guess would be that the lower staff actually is two staves, with a vertical distance of 6pt.

 

Switch to the Staff Tool, and take a look at the lower staff in Scroll View, at a high zoom percentage.

If you can see two staff handles, then select one, and delete the staff.

thanks Peter, I am not an experienced user yet. I tried to follow your instruction and indeed there were two staves, but I did not succeed in deleting one of them: probably didn't do something right. Finally I copied the whole document to a new one and that also solved my problem.

Anyway thanks for your attention!

FYI: In recent versions of Finale, you delete staves in the Score Manager using the little "X" at the right of the staff info line.

When you are in the Staff Tool, you have access to the Staff menu.

When the staff handle is selected, go to

Staff menu > Delete Staves

or

Staff menu > Delete Staves and Reposition
