In order to mark a violin part with portamento (NOT glissandos!) I typically use the smart shape tool and select the straight line. It marks the portamento fine but then if I take the measure with that marking and then copy & paste it to a villa or cello staff the portamento line is no longer lined up precisely next to the notes as they were in the violin. Does anyone have a solution to this?
I am using Finale v26.3 and Mac OS 10.13.6
