Hi - I am using Finale Vers. 26.2.2.493 on Mac OS Catalina. I am trying to find how to create the two arrow lines on the end of a staff to indicate that it will now be splitting into two or more parts, i.e. Soprano line will split into Soprano 1 and Soprano 2. Can anyone help me with this please? I'd be ever so grateful!

Thank you!!

Hi Mike

Thank you so much but I’m afraid I’m a bit dense … I have installed the PopChar utility from the link you gave but how do I go about finding the Bravura font to use it in my text? Sorry, but I’m not very bright at these things so need guiding! :)

Bravura is a free font. You can get it at https://github.com/steinbergmedia/bravura

 

Download and install the font.

To use it:

In Finale, select the Text tool, and double-click where you want the text frame. Open PopChar, find the character in the Bravura font, and click on it. It will be wrong, in the score. Select that wrong character, go to the Text menu > Font Settings...  In the next window, choose the Bravura font, and play around with the size until you like it.

 

It sounds complicated. But after you’ve done it a couple of times, it’s faster to do than to describe.

The Bravura link doesn't work.  It opens a page which does not contain the file.

If you download the Dorico free trial, it will include the latest versions of Bravura and the Pentaluma (handwritten) font.

 

You can then uninstall the Dorico demo.
