Hi

Using Finale 2014,windows 10, I'm looking for a function that shows the range of a specific staff. If I understood correctly, the range check plug in only checks out of range for instrument. I would like to display the range of each staff. 

Can any one tell me how can I do it? 

Thanks a lot!

Welcome to the forum!

 

… I would like to display the range of each staff …

 

It is not clear what you need.

 

- Do you need the range as info for your work in Finale (perhaps displayed in a dialog box)?

 

- Or do you need the range displayed in the layout, as info for the performer?

 

The better we understand, the better we can help.

Thanks, Peter. This is what I meant: 

this kind of information at the first page, close to the beginning of each staff. 

Thanks again!

You could treat it as a coda system. That is, set your ranges up in the first measure, and start the piece in measure 2. Hide and adjust measure numbers, and time and key signatures in the Measure Attributes.

… and beware that there is a plug-in:

Plug-ins menu > Measures > Create Coda System…

I don't think the OP was trying to find out how to position the info, rather asking for a function that would calculate the information for each staff. Sounds like a feature request.

I think Peter meant “be aware” rather than “beware!”

 

The Create Coda System plugin is very handy!

 

Adrian, I agree. But rather than asking Finale to add the feature, which would probably never happen, I think it would be a great project for the FinaleScript or JW Lua mavens. It’s sort of like the Handbells Used function.

Thanks, Guys. Adrian, you were right, I was wondering if this feature exists, and I understand it is not. 

I will send it as a request. Thank you all!
