When You write a couple of whole notes you must tie them individually (in Speedy, by hitting the « = » key).

I think that when you have it in a bunch of parts it's a waste of time. I suggest to create a function, via a plug-in to select all the notes which should be tied and make it in one stroke.

Let's see, in Speedy entry you press "7" then "=", then do the same thing in the next measure, that's it.

If you need it in other parts, copy and paste, select the measures, then use one of the built in transposition meta-tools to put it at the correct pitch. This whole process is very quick and efficient.

 

We obviously have a different definition of "waste of time".

You are probably right (on the notion of wasting time).

What I'm talking about is let's say you write four bars of a sustained note for a four part choir.

For him to sing the part, it is necessary, if I am right, to string together 16 bars, moving from one measure to another for each voice.

You cannot copy and paste, because to my knowledge you can do only for slurs, but not for ties that are "linked" at their own pitch.

So you have to do it 16 times.

I'd rather select everything and tell Finale to tie all the notes horizontally in one fell swoop.

When I’m entering in Simple, I enter the whole note, tap the T key to start the tie, enter the next whole note,T, rinse and repeat. Copy/paste will include the ties.

 

Entering the notes, and then going back to tie them, strikes me as the hard way to do it.

Michael Jaremczuk,

 

Have you tried Jari Williamson’s plug-in JW Tie Notes ?

Not yet. I was thinking of something like the plug in Easy tremolo, for instance. 
i will check the JW plug ins.

I’ve just downloaded a bunch of JW plug-ins. 
I’ve found exactly the one I was searching for to globally tie notes together in one stroke. 
Jari Williamson has found this lack of Finale and he has fixed it. 
Thanks to him.

And please remember that although Jari makes these available for free, he accepts (and deserves) donations/
