I'm new here but I've been using finale for a while. There is a thing I can't make it work right now (although it worked on previous versions).
If I create a new (customised) clef and want to change the octave placement of an accidental, the trick I used doesn't work anymore – in brief what is patiently explained by Peter Thomsen here.
Actually, I can change the octave placement if I set it as a nonstandard key signature ("Linear key format 2" or so) but I can't do this using a "normal" major key.
Here is an example: I have a clef (let's say basically a G clef) with two flats (Bb major). I want the second flat (Eb) to be on the first line of the staff though (and not on the upper space).
Why Finale now doesn't recognise the change of octave placement that I'm setting in "Linear key format 0" (ClefOrd etc...)? Indeed, it continues to display the Eb in the usual place...
Thank you very much in advance for any hint!
