It is quite common in piano-vocal music to notate dotted eighth + sixteenth notes when what is intended is a swing (not a strict dotted rhythm). It would be nice to be able to set this as a human playback style. At the moment to achieve this, I have to create separate staves - one for the notated music and another for the playback. I thought perhaps a negative swing value might work but of course the swing settings are only applied to eighths (not to dotted eighths or to sixteenth notes). 

 

I am running Finale 27 on both Windows and Mac

Welcome to the forum!

 

Getting swing playback from {dotted eighth + sixteenth} is already possible - with the MIDI Tool.

But you have to edit each instance of the rhythm.

To avoid doing it “manually”, It Would Be Nice with a plug-in doing all the work.

 

Indeed a separate Human Playback style option sounds interesting.

But then there is need for the option of toggling off the playback effect in specific places, where the user needs {dotted eighth + sixteenth} played as written.

You could notate your swing with two, eighth notes and the swing articulation, and then use dotted eighth/sixteenth where you wanted it to be a stricter rhythm.
