Whenever I click a note it just highlights the note. My god Finale is overly complicated. I have to use it for this job and it's so frustrating

You are using PrintMusic - right?

- for Windows - right?

 

It is not clear to me what part of the workflow you are asking about.

 

Are you entering music - or have you finished entering music, and are trying to audio spot check what you have entered?

 

To audio spot check, hold down Ctrl + Spacebar, and point with the cursor.

As you move the cursor around, the program will let you hear what you are pointing at.

On Win10, Ctrl-alt-spacebar for one note. Ctrl-spacebar will sound everything on that note's beat. Finale's learning curve can be brutal, but eventually, it will do almost everything you want.

You can hear the note as you enter it. You can playback what you have entered. You cannot just click on an entered note, and hear it, as far as I know. I’m on Mac, so I can’t try Girard’s suggestion.

What are you trying to do, that is so frustrating? Are you more used to another notation program?

Ctrl-alt-spacebar for one note. - are you sure? For me it is Shift-Ctrl-spacebar for one note

Ctrl-spacebar will sound everything - correct

Michael, that's exactly right. Ctrl-shift-spacebar for one note. Too many things going on at once here. Thank you!
