Mac OS 10.15.7, Finale 26.3, imac 2015 quad-core i5

I have an organ score where I'm running the top staff on the Great on channel 2, and the 2nd staff on channel 3 for the Swell. That's fine. But then the right hand needs to go to the Swell. I've created an Expression like this:

...and nothing happens.
I've tried working around this by putting the music into Layer 2 and then setting Layer 2 in the score manager to channel 3. This gives me SILENCE in the right hand, a silence that persisted even when I changed the layer back, until I reverted to a previous version of the file.
I can kludge the next measures by setting Swell to Great, but later I really need diapason sound in both hands and so need to have them both on 2 (and there is no Swell to Great on this organ). It would seem to me that channel change is purely a Finale thing, since Hauptwerk is responding fine to channels 1, 2 and 3. What am I missing/doing wrong here?

Have you thought of doing a very short test project as "proof of concept" using Garritan sounds to see if shifting MIDI channels to change sounds works with provided sounds and to test your methodology. Once you have made that work (or found out that it doesn't) you can apply the concept to Hauptwerk to see if it works there or give yourself a basis for troubleshooting the Hauptwerk VST interface--or you can check back here if Garritan doesn't work for you either.

Good advice! And embarrassing, since both Garritan and the Aria player worked fine, but offered no further illumination. Maybe I'll annoy the Hauptwerk people for awhile.
