The explode works great except when you get a situation with this example when on extracting

you get this result

Is there a simple way (for a simple guy!) to just copy the last two notes to the lower stave?

Sorry if this is an idiot question. I am preparing practice tracks for a choir by extracting to MIDI and then recording from there. I know you can record from Finale but I am a MIDI sort of guy (and age!)

Thanks

Rather than Explode, I would use JW Staff Polyphony, which has a setting to treat Single notes as unisons.  You can get the plugin at www.finaletips.nu

Jari makes these plugins available for free, but he accepts (and deserves) donations.

Thanks Mike. Looks ideal.

I have downloaded and put into the plug-ins directory but despite relaunch Finale26 the plug in is not recognised.

Any wheezes to know?

OK so plugin displays just like your Mac version and I select the options which actually are the default and press Apply. I get a dialogue which says the destination staves have notes, continue but nothing happens when I select OK.. I have selected the stave using the stave tool and it is show selected. Either that or nothing happens.

Idea?

I make sure the destination staff is actually empty, as a “just in case.”

How do you set the destination?
On Explode it adds the necessary staves but not on this plugin it seems.
I tried adding staves but there seems to be no method of selecting the destination.

The JW Staff Polyphony plug-in, by default, has Split Direction set to Down, but you have 3 other options.

The destination staves will be adjacent to the source staff, and empty. But of course, you can later copy/paste to other staves.

The plug-in also has a Swap function (under Staves). You can swap the selected contents of 2 staves, even non contiguous.

P.S. : Finale's Explode function can also use existing staves.
