How do I insert or delete an individual beat in a measure???
I am working on a score that has several instruments on individual staves.  Somehow in the middle of the song a couple of the staves have gotten out of timing sync with the other staves.
Example #1: notes from beat 1 of a measure are now showing up as beat 4 of the previous measure which pulls the rest of that entire part a full beat ahead of the other instruments.  I would like FINALE to insert a beat in my dysfunctional measure and push the rest of that staff out for the rest of the song.
Example #2: notes from beat 3 of a measure are now showing up as beat 4 of that measure which pushes the rest of that entire part a full beat behind the other instruments.  I would like FINALE to delete the extra beat 4 in my dysfunctional measure and close the gap, pulling the rest of the entire staff back in sync with the other staves.

In one of my other music programs there are specific functions for doing exactly this ("insert beat and create gap" or "delete beat and close the gap") but so far I have not found a way to do this in FINALE.  Your comments and/or suggestions would be most appreciated.

I select the entire line, starting at the problem, and drag forward or backward to the correct position. You may have to delete a copied note or two at the beginning or end.
